- suspended scheduled activities (tours/classes/experiences) until further notice
- suspending online booking
- Opening online orders for gin
- Secret project
How to support us
You can support your local distillery - buy your gin online or purchase a tour voucher you can use in the future (add it to your “lockdown freedom list”). A share or a like on social is always appreciated.
Click and collect
We are allowed to open our shop (as an off-licence) under the government lockdown rules.
However, as we are all doing our best to minimise social contact, we decided that it was best to close the click and collect facility for the time being. Although painful this is part of our contribution to fighting the pandemic and flattening the infection curve. We will keep this under review.
Online ordering is now available - buy our gin online and #SupportLocal.
As the curve flattens, click and collect may soon return as a delivery option.
Any vouchers purchased before / during the lockdown will have their expiry date extended for an amount of time equal to that of the lockdown duration. E.g. if the lockdown is enacted for 6 months, then all vouchers will have their expiry date extended for 6 months.
Tour vouchers can be redeemed when the online booking is re-opened (once lockdown relaxed). You can also redeem your vouchers over the phone if there is a specific date/time you'd prefer.
Existing bookings are eligible for a full refund if affected by the lockdown. However, we would hope you would choose to support local and re-book your event for a future date.
It was amazing to launch Aberdeen’s first gin distillery over the last few months and while it is disappointing that COVID has forced us to close our doors just as it was getting busy we have not been sitting in our hands.
To help, we have produced much needed hand sanitiser (to the exact WHO Formula #1) to NHS GP Surgeries throughout the city. It’s so important when you consider that GPs interact with some of our most vulnerable in our society and even visit their homes.
If your NHS GP surgery is running low – please ask them to get in touch with us.
Prior to the lockdown, we had the pleasure to host 100’s of guests at the Gin School – from those literally round the corner to those further afield, such as Germany, Netherlands and Australia. We can’t wait to see you when the lockdown ends. You can buy a Gin School Experience voucher at a reduced price during the lockdown to help support local.
We have lots of new and exciting things we are working on and can’t wait to share them all with you - sign up to our social media to keep informed (links in the footer).
