Kirsty’s Gin is named after our master distiller at Arbikie, Kirsty Black, who carefully chose local botanicals to represent Arbikie’s unique landscape and surroundings.

THE ARBIKIE HIGHLAND ESTATE

Arbikie Estate is a family-owned working farm perched on the east coast of Angus. Here, the crop is king. We painstakingly plant, sow, tend and harvest the fields that make up Arbikie. We are craftsmen of the soil. This is an estate profoundly shaped by its environment: the red sandstone-tinted soil, the powerful sea and the turbulent weather give Arbike a character found nowhere else. And here, situated where land meets sea, sits our distillery – created from an ancient barn, it is a place with all the ingredients required to produce authentic spirits of the highest quality.

Our Story

Our family has been farming at Arbikie for four generations. From father to son, we have gained an intuitive understanding of the land, sowing and harvesting the crops that now create Arbikie’s range of field to bottle spirits. Farming in the Stirling family goes back even further - since 1660, initially on the west coast. Our lands passed through seven generations until great uncle Bill moved to farm at Arbikie on the east coast of Angus in the 1920’s. He then passed it to our grandfather, John Stirling who expanded the acreage before passing the lands over to Alec Stirling.
Brothers John, Iain and David are the visionaries and driving force behind the Arbikie Distillery. As with all farming families, the brothers grew up working around the farm, and It is this hands-on experience that gave them a deep understanding and respect of the land. Despite pursuing careers away from farming, they have always stayed attached to the family lands - and now with the opening and growth of the Arbikie Highland Estate distillery, they have returned to drive this exciting and continually evolving venture.
