We’re a young, independent, organic whisky distillery on the west coast of Scotland. We exist to create experimental spirits and pioneer sustainable production.
Scotch with purpose
Our story began in 2012: Annabel pondering her future whilst working as a consultant in London. During a whisky road trip came a lightbulb moment: why do so many distilleries do things the same way things have always been done… perhaps there are other ways? Then five years creating a distillery from scratch on a wild, west-coast estate. We started distilling in March 2017 and from the beginning we’ve set out to do things differently, to get people to think again about Scotch. We’re uninhibited by tradition and we’re not afraid to colour outside of the lines.
Ncn’ean Botanical Spirit: not whisky, not gin.
The first of our experiments to be released, our Botanical Spirit is based on our unaged whisky spirit and redistilled with ten botanicals by our friends, Beinn An Tuirc, a west coast gin distillery. Inspired by the beautiful flavours in our unaged spirit and the wild herbs and flowers that grow around the distillery, we set out to create a perfect marriage of the two. This unusual spirit makes a fantastic cocktail or simply serve over ice with tonic and Angostura bitters.
