Glorious Gins

Whitetail Gin Distillery sits on Tiroran Estate on the Isle of Mull, where the majestic white-tailed eagle nests close by, one of Europe's largest birds of prey. Just like their namesake, Whitetail gin is superior in strength and power, but is also subtly smooth, much like that of the Eagle. The distillery uses sustainably sourced botanicals, such as juniper, coriander, lemon peel, heather, and even sea-kelp collected from the shores of Loch Scridain. Whitetail Gin has a selection of flavoured gins perfect for any occasion. Why not try the Whitetail Late Summer Berry Liqueur, which won the best Scottish Gin Award at the World Liqueur Awards in 2021.
