Persie Gin Distillery

Located at the foot of Glenshee in Highland Perthshire, Persie Gin is hand-crafted in small batches in – ironically – a stables-turned-distillery. It is the first dedicated gin distillery to be awarded brown sign status by Visit Scotland and has been publicly recognised as a star-rated destination on the Scottish tourist map.

There are three award-winning aromatic expressions – Zesty Citrus, Herby and Sweet & Nutty – plus a distinctive range of ‘dog gins’ in aid of PADS dog rescue charity: Labrador Gin, Spaniel Gin and Dachshund Gin Liqueur. For every bottle sold, £1 is donated to PADS to help rescue and rehome unwanted dogs.

Simon Fairclough, distiller and managing director, explains: “Signing up to become the official drinks sponsor for Blair Horse Trials is a perfect fit for us. It is local, committed to animal welfare, and has a strong focus on charitable giving. That’s what drives our team at Persie Distillery and we are proud to be a partner.”
