Back to Bute
Our Isle of Bute Gin story cannot start without a mention to the Bute locals’ who’s welcome is unlike any other. The “Haste Ye Back” sign as you exit Rothesay terminal could not be more accurate, as this town should come with a ‘WARNING Addictive’ notice.
After breaking down on one of the island’s country roads, every car that passed stopped to ask if they could assist. An attitude and courtesy that can be forgotten in today’s’ busy life. The friendliness of the people of Bute, made us soon realise we didn’t just want to produce gin on Bute, we wanted to be part of the community.
Established in 2018, our business philosophy has evolved beyond our love of juniper and Scottish produce. We create gin that not only tastes great but is designed to showcase the true spirit of Bute.
Our plans to open our micro-distillery situated in the center of Rothesay, are underway. This is where we’ll have our distilling and brewing experience under one roof for visitors and locals’ to enjoy our hospitality whilst experiencing the Bute welcome that we previously have.
Opening our doors to gin enthusiasts, amateurs or anyone who just wants to see what the hype’s about! Our aim to enhance Bute’s tourism offering, create more sustainable business and employment opportunities for the island.
To keep you up to date with our progress and news, we will be updating our blog regularly to share our #BacktoBute journey.< back
