CITY OF ABERDEEN DISTILLERY & GIN SCHOOL

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.

See our latest COVID update to know what to expect.

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.

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...

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 👍
