Distilleries in Kintyre

Once the self-proclaimed 'whisky capital' of the world, Campbeltown still retains three whisky distilleries. Head up the East coast to Torrisdale, and you'll find Torrisdale Castle, home to one of the newest and most ecologically sound gin distilleries in Scotland, powered entirely by renewable energy.

Glen Scotia Distillery

Founded in 1832, Glen Scotia has a formidable one hundred and eighty year history, and remains one of the smallest Scotch whisky distilleries in Scotland. It maintains much of its original design, including the fermenters, the stillroom and the dunnage warehouse dating from the 1830s.

Beinn-an-Tuirc Gin Distillery

Kintyre Gin is sustainably produced using our very own renewable energy, powered from the small hydro-electric scheme at Torrisdale Castle Estate. Our water is sourced from the hill from which we take our name. ‘Beinn an Tuirc’ translates from gaelic as ‘The Hill of the Wild Boar’ and is the highest point in Kintyre, located above our distillery building. We are not currently open for tours but work on our visitor centre will start in the Autumn and when that is complete we will be able to offer visitors the full Kintyre Gin experience!
