Dornoch Distillery

The Dornoch Distillery was founded by Simon and Philip Thompson, with the help of crowd-funding. Well known for running the family owned Dornoch Castle Hotel, the brothers have now turned their hand to making craft gin.

Works began in 2016 to renovate a 19th-century fire station into a micro distillery that now houses two direct gas-fired pot stills, a pot column still, wooden washbacks and a mash tun.

After months of testing and experimental batches, their Thompson Brothers Organic Highland Gin was released in 2017. The gin uses 10% of their own organic  floor-malted heritage barley spirit, which is slowly fermented and twice distilled.
