SCOTTISH GIN TOUR
Take your senses on an adventure with our award-winning Gin Distillery Tour.

For all gin fans out there, a very warm welcome awaits you at Crafty Distillery in gorgeous Galloway to join us on a unique tour for your taste buds, where we’ll also share the secrets of our process.

Meet our friendly team as you are guided through our innovative approach to making our award-winning gins and vodka, learning each step of the process, driven by our uniquely inclusive approach ‘to create spirits for everyone who likes a tipple’. You will discover the unique blend of botanicals that come together to create our heavily awarded Hills & Harbour Gin, the hands on approach that goes into capturing the big fresh flavours from Smoked Pineapples & Burnt Oranges and the slow and careful that crafts our exquisitely pure Scottish vodka.

What’s more, we always go the extra mile at Crafty, so rather than serve a few small gin samples, we’ll take you on a guided tasting through 3x perfect serves of their spirits. You’ll get to enjoy our smooth & vibrant Hills & Harbour Gin, fruity Hills & Harbour Distilled Gin Cocktail and our silky pure 24Seven Vodka, all while kicking back and enjoying the amazing views over the Galloway hills.

We also cater for vehicle drivers who can take away a sample to enjoy later.

There’s a good reason why Crafty Distillery is awarded 5 stars on Trip Advisor and Visit Scotland. Come and see for yourself and book a one-of-a-kind tour.

Please see calendar for timings and availability.

Please note that all tours must be booked in advance.


SCOTCH WHISKY TOUR
Treat your senses to an immersive Scotch Whisky tour like no other.

Whether you are a whisky novice, a seasoned expert or simply want an authentic Scottish experience, the Crafty Distillery Scotch Whisky Tour has something special for you. A warm Galloway welcome awaits you on this behind the scenes tour at one of Scotland’s most innovative distilleries. You will learn how our special Billy&Co single malt scotch whisky pioneered a new approach in the Scottish whisky industry. For the very first time, our fresh thinking was coupled with major scientific exploration and the feedback from hundreds of whisky fans. This pioneering approach carved out a smooth and characterful new make spirit, truly developed with the people for the people.

The tour offers a strong focus on touch, smell and taste to help transport you into the wondrous journey of transforming malted barley into scotch whisky. Your expert guide will carefully explain each stage as you explore our pioneering approach. Experience how our 100% Scottish barley, unique yeast and innovative processes have elevated the possibilities of whisky flavour to create our unique new make spirit.

At the end of the tour, sit back and enjoy the panoramic views over the picturesque Galloway hills while tasting a sample of our Billy&Co new make spirit.

Tour price includes a beautifully presented branded Glencairn glass worth £8.00, and we also cater for vehicle drivers who are welcome to take away a sample to enjoy later.

There’s a good reason why Crafty Distillery is awarded 5 stars on Trip Advisor and Visit Scotland. Come and see for yourself and book a one-of-a-kind tour.
