From its humble roots, the Stirling Distillery now produces a unique spirit that reflects the countryside of Stirlingshire, by using locally foraged nettles and basil. Take a deep dive into the history and science behind making gin - tour the building, experiment with botanicals and end off by creating your very own gin varietal.

  • Learn about the history of gin, followed by the science of gin distilling
