It’s good news all round  for Kintyre Gin this week.

Just two years since production began at Beinn an Tuirc Distillery a major expansion is now being planned.

That will see a new gin school and cafe at the Torrisdale Castle Estate and a new off-sales in Campbeltown selling wines, beers and spirits as well as, of course, Kintyre Gin to be called Hall’s of  Campbeltown.

The news comes in the week it has been announced the distillery has secured a  major deal with supermarket Morrisons, who are to sell Kintyre Gin in the west of Scotland stores.

And if that’s not enough the distillery picked up two awards at the 3rd Scottish Gin Awards last week with the tiny Gintyre Festival almost pipping the mighty Edinburgh to the title of Scottish gin event of the year.

It is little wonder then that owner and Torrisdale laird, Niall Macalister Hall, is cock-a-hoop at how his distillery plan has helped to diversify income at the estate and help further promote this beautiful part of Scotland.

Cheers to Kintyre Gin’s success.
