Strathearn Distillery

Distillery
Founded in 2013
The Strathearn distillery, which labels itself as, "probably the smallest in Scotland," can be found in Methven, near Crieff in a set of former farm buildings.

Strathearn is a new distillery in an old building. While the farmhouse it occupies is over 160 years old, Strathearn was only founded in 2013.

Strathearn prides itself on being small but mighty. The production comes from a pair of stills, an 800 liter wash and a 400 liter spirit. Its casks are equally diminutive, weighing in at a paltry 50 liters per, significantly daintier than the industry-standard 200.

Strathearn produces four different Gins, showing they’re serious about the stuff and this isn’t just a stop-gap until the Whisky is ready. The range contains an Oaked Gin, a Citrus Gin, a Juniper Gin (aren’t they all?!) and a Highland Rose Gin, which turns from an amber color when neat, to a pale pink when tonic water is added. The distillery is a small one, so to make their Gin, like many distilleries, they buy in their neutral grain Spirit, and distil it according to one of the four Gin recipes.

Despite its size, the distillery is a feature on the WSTA approved Scotland Gin Trail, and offers a 4 hour long Gin experience, amongst other things. This focus on small size allows the distillery to iterate rapidly, experimenting with techniques and equipment, to push the boundaries of malt.

Strathearn might get the boy wonder award. Their distiller was only 22 when they started!

Strathearn Distillery takes pride in being the smallest distillery in Scotland... probably.
