Arbikie Highland Estate & Distillery

Arbikie Highland Estate & Distillery

Overview

Arbikie Distillery we are on a journey to being one of the world’s most sustainable distilleries, distilling the world’s first climate-positive gin and vodka and the first Rye Scotch Whisky for 200 years. We will soon become the world’s first green hydrogen-powered distillery and our Distillery Experience at stunning Lunan Bay is a must visit.

Our Distillery Experience offers luxurious hospitality whether in the upstairs Stirling Suite, or downstairs in the Kirkwood with both having stunning views down to the North Sea.

The STIRLING SUITE is a bespoke events space, an ideal location for unique meetings and seminars in comfortable and luxurious surroundings as well as providing space for private tastings, lunches and dinners. With space for up to 75 people in the main suite, we also have smaller and more intimate, break-out spaces available in the Library and Cigar Room. This unique space enjoys unparalleled views over our farmland west and down to stunning Lunan Bay. All catering can be tailored to suit any group, all using the most local produce.

The KIRKWOOD is home to our Guided Tours of the Distillery, Tutored Tastings of our range of gins, vodkas and Highland Rye whisky and our cafe where we serve fresh, homemade and local foods, using our farm to fork ethos. Alongside is our well stocked shop sells our full family of sustainable spirits as well as a variety of branded, luxury Arbikie gifts and merchandise.

We also have accommodation available in our luxury ÖÖD Hötels houses, see below for more details.

Reviews

Diane Mordacq (Club Demeter, France)
December 2023

"We were very charmed by your distillery, where tradition meets modernity. At Club DEMETER, we like to connect multiple players and favour a forward-looking approach and we totally felt that vibe at Arbikie Distillery. The best example is that by combining agronomic and distillation knowledge, you succeeded to develop a climate-friendly range of spirits. Also, by managing the process from production to consumption, you offer transparency to your customers, which we believe is a competitive advantage."
