Gin geniuses will pack Campbeltown Town hall in April at the second Gintyre.

Tickets for the second festival of Scottish gins on Saturday April 13 are selling fast.

Festival goers will have the chance to meet the producers and try gins from Kintyre’s Beinn an Tuirc Distillers (Kintyre Gin) and William Cadenheads (Old Raj) as well as invited guest producers from around Scotland.

A number of fringe events are also planned for the weekend, including a gin dinner at the award-winning Ardshiel Hotel, an open day at Beinn an Tuirc Distillery on the Torrisdale Estate, a Cadenhead’s cask-aged gin tasting and a special screening of ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ at the historic Campbeltown Picture House.

Gintyre is a collaboration between Beinn an Tuirc Distillers, Explore Campbeltown and Campbeltown Town Hall.

Beinn an Tuirc Distillers director Emma Macalister Hall said: ‘Our aim is to encourage visitors to come to Kintyre to experience this unique part of Scotland, whilst taking the opportunity to sample some of Scotland’s finest gins.’
