Isle of Bute Gin

Isle of Bute gin currently produces two gins, sourced from botanicals and aromatics found here on the Isle of Bute and created by multi-award-winning brewer and alcohol expert, Simon Tardivel.

The Oyster Gin (a world first!) is not like anything you will have tasted before… but we know you will find the unique flavours a real treat. We charge our still with oysters, fresh from the Argyll Coast, to add a delicate maritime essence to this gin. This, blended with a mix of citrus and other botanicals, creates a savoury gin that cannot be matched.

The glorious yellow blossoms of gorse feature in our Gorse Gin.  This is made with hand-picked gorse from the Bute, along with a mix of other botanicals carefully selected from around the globe. These give this gin a delicate coconut and vanilla aroma, backed up with a distinct pine and juniper flavour.

If you are intrigued to find out more, you can purchase gins directly from Isle of Bute Gin’s website 

The gins can also be purchased on-island from Bute Brew’s premises, on Columshill Street in Rothesay.
