COVID-19 Update

Latest COVID-update (19/07/2021)

The Scottish Government has introduced the new tiered system.

Our region, Aberdeen City, is current in Tier 0.

We have implemented the Scottish Government’s rules and additional recommended measures in order to protect everyone from COVID-19.

Maximum capacities in Tier 0

  • Discovery Tour - up to 12 attendees
  • Gin Tasting Masterclass - up to 18 attendees (see below)
  • Gin School Experience - up to 18 attendees (see below)

For the Gin Tasting Masterclass / Gin School Experience, you'll be seated at the gin making bench.  The maximum capacity depends on the number of social bubbles attending the event.  We are required to leave 1m (two seats) between social bubbles.

E.g. 2 social bubbles - 2 groups of 9 - maximum of 18 attendees.
E.g. 5 social bubbles - 5 sets of couples - maximum of 10 attendees.

We want you to feel safe and comfortable during your time with us - if you have any questions, please get in touch.

We are taking exclusive event bookings for social bubbles to reduce the risk to you – if you want to have an adventure / fun afternoon – so long as we have a minimum of two people we’re happy to run the event just for your group.

As things can change quickly with coronavirus we are offering a no-fuss, no-fee rebooking/refund until further notice. Book with confidence that you can attend your event, rebook your event or simply get a refund.

What are we are doing to help protect you?

  • In order to minimise contact, we are currently only allowing two persons/social groups to enter the distillery shop at any one time. 
  • Staff regularly clean door handles and surfaces
  • Staff are equipped with face masks and will maintain the required distance
  • Staff regularly clean their hands
  • Staff ensure the toilets are regularly cleaned and are available only during events

What can I do to help?

  • All visitors to the shop are requested to
    • Use hand sanitiser at the entrance
    • Wear face masks (except when sampling products).
  • Maintain minimum social distancing
  • If requested during events, please use the supplied protective gloves

Thank you to all visitors - you've been doing a great job at keeping safe with masks and distance!

Reduced social distancing during events

During events the required distance will be maintained and masks are not required while drinking.  We ask that you maintain a good social distance from fellow visitors and we'll do our best to ensure the safest environment.  We may ask you to wear gloves when handling any shared items.

Uniform & NHS discount

Anyone associated with the NHS (whether a surgeon, cleaner, car park attendance etc.) upon presenting their ID are able to take advantage of a 10% discount at the distillery.

Thank you!

To help the community, 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.

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 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).

Stay safe,
Dan and Alan.
