1881 Gin Distillery & School

Our gin called 1881 Gin, that is when the Hydro opened for business and the water started flowing in. In those days Peebles Hydropathic was visited by people getting out of the cities to enjoy fresh air and to “take the waters”, when most spa treatments were predominately water treatments (and sometimes with a bit of electricity mixed in!).

From that day to this the hotel water supply is from a place called Shieldgreen, in the hills behind us. So we are using our very own and very local water supply to make our gin.
