Welcome to the City of Aberdeen Distillery & Gin School - the first distillery in Aberdeen for nearly 80 years and home to the Aberdeen Gin School.

Owned and run by two friends, the distillery is situated in the heart of the Scottish City of Aberdeen (the Silver City with the Golden Sands), within a historic railway arch where true small batch Aberdeen Gins are designed and distilled.

The distillery is open to visitors who are invited to sample from the demi-johns (fill a bottle), enjoy a Distillery Tour, Gin Tasting Masterclass or even distil your very own 70cl bottle of gin at the Gin School Experience.

Aberdeen City is currently in level 4, and so the tours are currently suspended. However, the distillery shop is open from 12pm - 5:30pm. We also deliver UK wide via our online shop.

What others are saying


This was an incredible experience, Alan & Dan were just wonderful. If you really want a unique experience then this is definitely something for you. Worth every penny.

This is an excellent activity for big groups and for small ones to indulge in... A brilliant night out for sure!

-- Julia B, Aberdeen

I would highly recommend anyone to attend this as you will definitely have a good time and get to leave with a bottle of gin made by you!

-- Darryl M, Aberdeen

We did a gin tour and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Alan and Dan were friendly and so very knowledgeable about gin and the history of distilling in Aberdeen. The gin they make is delicious and we tried all the lovely flavours. What they have done with the space in the Arches is great and we are looking forward to going back to do the gin school.

-- Jen and Tim, Aberdeen

This was possibly the best birthday gift experience I've had. It was a joint gift for my daughter and I who have birthdays several days apart and we had a memorable, informative and entertaining evening. The venue has wow factor, the hosts are helpful, knowledgeable, informative and professional and we came away with our chosen gins. The range of botanicals available was mind boggling and I was glad the hosts expertise when we were selecting our mix. So much fun...

-- Pauline, Aberdeen

Fantastic evening at the Gin school. It was brilliant : informative and entertaining in equal measures. Dan and Alan went above and beyond to make sure our experience was special and were great hosts. We were looked after start to finish and would highly recommend.

-- Emily T, Aberdeen

We did the tasting masterclass. It was great, learned a lot and had way more drinks than we expected. Alan and Dan were really great and I would highl recommend it for anyone that wants to discover gin or maybe doesn't like it much and is open to diacovering it! Thank you!!!

-- Thibault, France

We went for the discovery tour, upon arrival you get a double (their own ‘Fresh’) gin & tonic which didn’t last very long. Interesting history of gin making in Aberdeen. Very friendly hosts and good fun. We’ll be back for the gin school 👍

-- Kenny M, Aberdeen

Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, delicious gin. Whats not to love?

-- Cecilia F, Aberdeen

Si vous êtes de passage à Aberdeen, n'hésitez pas à vous rendre dans cette distillerie de gin. Le lieu est très agréable, tout est bien pensé. Dan et Alan animent la visite de manière très chaleureuse et avec humour. L'histoire de la création de cette distillerie et de leur rencontre est très intéressante. Les informations sont précises et utiles. Les étapes de création du gin sont bien expliquées et la partie dégustation est très conviviale. Une excellente expérience que je recommande et que je referai moi même avec grand plaisir !
