Arbikie AK’S Gin

From Arbikie Highland Estate

This characterful gin is named after Alexander Kirkwood Stirling (aka AK). He’s the father of Arbikie Highland Estate distillery founders Iain, John and David, their inspiration for starting Arbikie Distillery.

AK has been a craftsman of seed and soil for over 60 years and has passed on all his passion and skill to the next generation. This Scottish field to bottle gin is a tribute to AK. The spirit is created entirely on our estate using our wheat and water. It is distilled in our copper pot still and bottled in the distillery. We’ve weaved in botanicals to give it earthy and spicy hints and fresh local honey to add a subtle smoothness. Tastes that relflect the essence of our AK.
