Inspiration & History
Gatehouse Gin launched in June 2019, is a joint venture between Duchally Country Estate and Strathearn Distillery.
Strathearn Distillery is Scotland’s original craft spirits distillery, and focuses on the careful, handcrafting of spirits, from distillation through to bottling. The passion and skill that goes into the making of their spirits is reflected in the smoothness and intensity of their flavours.
For Strathearn Distillery founder Tony Reeman–Clark and fellow distillers Russell Wallace and Zak Shenfield, the Gatehouse Gin design process was exciting. Apples, rosehips, gooseberries and thistle were explored in the search for a distinctive flavour.
To keep sourcing local, Duchally Country Estate has a botanicals garden and orchard with apple and plum trees.
