Stirling Distillery Tours

The Old Smiddy Gin School

You will be welcomed to our distillery with our bespoke welcome cocktail, shown our stunning Victorian building and seated at your very own mini still. One of our passionate staff members will then give you a run down of gin’s history, from its medical uses to binge drinking in the slums of London all the way through to today’s Scottish gin craze. They will then talk you through the science of gin distilling and show you a selection of beautiful botanicals which you will choose from to make an entirely unique gin all of your own. Over two hours you will charge your still, choose your flavours, test the gin as it comes off the condenser and bottle it with your personalised Old Smiddy Gin School label to take home. To finish up, you will enjoy a Stirling Gin perfect serve alongside a G&T made from your very own creation.
