Hills & Harbour Gin  Our mission is to create tasty, honest spirits for everyone who likes a tipple. All served with a dash of humour and a slice of enthusiasm.

We were soaking up some fine Galloway views today en route to collecting some Bladderwrack Seaweed for our tasty #hillsandharbourgin. Perks of the job! :) #craftydistillery #madetasty #dhoonbeach #visitgalloway

Stunning autumnal views from our distillery at the end of the day, after one of our #ginescapes. To really connect you with the provenance of our #hillsandharbourgin we take you out to discover the forests and coastlines of Galloway. Along the way you’ll help us pick our Noble Fir Needles and Bladderwrack Seaweed. The guys pictured are sitting down to enjoy award winning food from our #treebarandcafe along with 2x fantastic cocktails made with some of the fresh botanicals picked that day (recipes to follow). This is just one of the reasons why we’re the Scottish Gin Destination of the Year. We hope you can come and visit us sometime!

A BOLT OF INSPIRATION
.
We’re from Scotland. The country that brought the world some great inventions and ideas.
That’s why our logo is a little bolt of inspiration.
.
KEEPING EVERYONE IN GOOD SPIRITS
.
Using new technology, our own grain spirit and locally sourced ingredients we create tasty, wallet-pleasing spirits for everyone who likes a tipple.
.
We don’t want to just cater for the gin-connoisseur. Nope. We want to create unique craft spirits for you, her, and even him over there.
.
In the spirit of spirty togetherness, we promise only two things:

1) You won't have to re-mortgage your house to buy our stuff.

2) We won't bamboozle you with crazy ingredients, distilling jargon or trendy nonsense. .
All served with a dash of humour and a slice of enthusiasm. What’s not to like. Apart from the puns maybe.

Our tasty #hillsandharbourgin is a true reflection of our home here in Galloway. To help capture that we thought it would be fun to create this visual concept to explain what we mean on the bottle when we say “Made tasty by the secluded forests & coastlines of Galloway”. We think it sums it up well! :) As a relatively unknown region Galloway is what we like to call a mini Scotland. With the largest forest park in the UK, featuring mountains, lochs and more nature than you’ll ever see in one day, alongside the most accessible coastline in the UK, featuring stunning harbours, beaches and coastal walks, it’s a gem of a region to discover!

To celebrate this fantastic region we featured two of our very own local botanicals. Noble Fir Needles from the forest and Bladderwrack Seaweed from the coast. The needles add amazing fresh citrus notes alongside a salty scent of the shore and some savoury seasoning from the seaweed. This along with 9 other botanicals and featuring our very own wheat based spirit has created one seriously vibrant and smooth gin. Give it a try if you’ve not already! :)

How do you make 1,000 Galloway Forager cocktails with our #hillsandharbourgin and then serve to 1,000 gin lovers at the #ginanddisco event in Glasgow, @swg3glasgow this Saturday?

Well, you start by hand picking, trimming and washing 1,000 Noble Fir sprigs, prepare 25 litres of Elderflower cordial, create 5 litres of Oleo Saccharum bitters from scratch (made from the skin of over 50 red grapefruits and dark sugar) and finally you slice 50 fresh red grapefruits to get 1,000 slices.
All we need to do now is shake each one up individually. To do that you add 50ml of Hills & Harbour Gin, 25ml of Elderflower Cordial and a dash of Grapefruit Oleo to an ice filled shaker. Add a sprig of Noble Fir and shake. Strain into a glass over ice and top with soda. To finish garnish with a sprig of Noble Fir and a slice of grapefruit. Then repeat 1,000 times! phew. #hillsandharbourgin #ginanddisco #madetasty #keepingeveryoneingoodspirits #gallowayforager
