Porters Gin Tours


Porters Gin


With a passion for creating better drinks, the owners behind Porters Gin, turned the basement of their bar in Aberdeen, into one of the UK’s most innovative micro-distilleries.

With a mission to create new, innovative gin recipes that pay respect to tradition.

Distilling botanicals at low temperatures and retaining their fresh natural flavour, they perfected the art of cold distilling botanicals.

This respect for tradition while innovating results now sees them winning several awards and accolades and the gin being available in several countries worldwide.

Brilliant way to spend an afternoon! A great experience. Daniel was a brilliant, enthusiastic and attentive guide who provided us with so much knowledge about the gin, its background - and the science behind it all! Such a great way to pass an hour or so - and a delicious cocktail (or a g & t if that’s your preference) and banter round the bar to finish it all off. Highly recommended!
