The House of Elrick
Nestled in the lowlands of Aberdeenshire, the House of Elrick estate is a home rich in history. Built at the height of the Scottish Enlightenment period in 1720, our home hosted lively discussions from some of the most respected creative, philosophical and scientific minds of the time. Today we work to restore her walls and welcome you to join us once again. gin
Our hand crafted, artisan gin is one of the finest available. Botanicals hand-picked by our Master of Gin are a compliment of juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root and citrus peel, built around a core of heather, pink peppercorns, sweet fennel and rose petals.
As refreshing as it is aromatic, it is the only spirit made with the freshest water from Loch Ness. The resulting taste profile provides a fresh, yet earthy, bold infusion of flavours that can be enjoyed on ice or as part of a beautifully crafted cocktail.
Small batch, artisan gin
When crafting the absolute best in premium spirits, quality over quantity is key. Our liquid is distilled by hand in batches of 600 bottles per run, which means we can maintain control over every bottle that leaves our distillery. Botanicals are handpicked before each distillation through our bespoke pot still.
For the independent, entrepreneurial doers
We strongly believe in the championing and support of the individual and work with independent farmers and suppliers to craft a liquid of the absolute premium quality. It is this team of people that enable us to source only the highest quality ingredients and process our small batch gin responsibly and with absolute confidence.
We actively seek partners who think differently and challenge the norm, working openly and honestly to create the best quality liquid batch by batch.

Space for enlightened minds
Constructed at the height of the Scottish Enlightenment period in 1720, the House of Elrick was the home of an entrepreneurial family of cattle farmers and millers, and has passed hands only 5 times in almost 300 years. Well-travelled and curious, members of the household often visited Florence Italy, a country already swept by European Enlightenment thinking, returning with tales of new science and philosophical learnings that echoed the writings of many of the leading Scottish Enlightened thinkers of the time.
On return to the estate the family sought to host company that would continue the philosophical, scientific and creative discussion of the time, encouraging the expansion of free-thinking over blind faith and thus saw a number of creative and maverick individuals pass through their doors. Later the house was to be visited by Bonnie Prince Charlie who gifted the Jacobite rose to the estate. It can now be found growing in the beautiful walled garden at the heart of the grounds. Follow our journey of renovation as we look to reopen the doors of the estate once again.
