A triple serving of good news from Crafty Distillery

We love to share good news and here’s a whole lot of it from the folks at Crafty Distillery in Galloway.

No strangers to an award, the Crafty team have been picking up accolades for their awesome Hills & Harbour Gin and their unique Gin Escape at their home in the hills and coastlines of Galloway over the last year or so.

Double Global Gold

So we’re excited to share that they received Gold. No, make that Double Gold for Hills & Harbour at the San Francisco Global Spirits Competition – only one of the most coveted and respected global spirit contests!

If our word wasn’t good enough, then let this be the inspiration you need to try out this fantastic craft Scottish Gin. Available to buy here.

And the good news doesn’t stop there, because we can also reveal that they have launched a brand new product and it’s got us very excited…

Introducing a world first

Those Crafty buggers have gone and launched a new and innovative 100% distilled gin cocktail. Available to buy, ready to enjoy, with the award-winning Hills & Harbour Gin as a base.

So what makes this new product unique? The team tells us:

Smoked Pineapple & Burnt Oranges come together to create our Smokey & Citrus Distilled Cocktail. Made with a wheelbarrow load of fresh fruit in each batch, we hand-smoked, torched, macerated, pressed and then distilled all these fresh flavours to create a big and complex heart to this cracker of a cocktail. It also includes our award-winning Hills & Harbour Gin to the base and some natural sweetness for balance.

Not only do we have our grain to glass Hills & Harbour gin as the base, we use literally an overflowing wheelbarrow load of fresh fruit in every batch. This creates big flavours through pure distillation. Several days of process, many skills, techniques and craft achieves something truly special – the world’s first distilled cocktail. 0% Artificial ‘stuff’. 0% Nonsense. 100% Distilled.

This is great news for the Crafty Distillery team and we’re sure to be trying it very soon. We’ve been told that it can be a bitter, balanced or sweet serve depending on whether you add tonic, soda or lemonade. Or try it neat, on the rocks.
