“It’s strange how the advice to drink eight glasses of water a day seems impossible to achieve – but six glasses of gin at a tasting? That goes down like a chubby kid on a see-saw.”
Take a trip to Glenshee
Our award-winning spirits are hand-crafted in small batches on the site of the former Persie Hotel at the foot of Glenshee in Highland Perthshire. We’d love you to visit us!
If you’re passing and you’d like to pop in for a quick visit, check our opening times. We always have samples on the go so you can try before you buy! And if you’d like to have a seat and try them all, it costs £7 per head for a sample session of seven gins. A soft drink sample session costs £4 per head and is a real hit with children!
Book a Tour
If you’re keen for a full tour and gin tasting, please make sure to book ahead. Our ‘liquid tour’ costs £15 per head and includes a gin flight of Persie expressions in the distillery tasting room – followed by special editions. You can hear all about the backstory of Persie Gin, the botanicals, the process and the brand, then have a tour of where the magic happens. This tends to last about an hour and a half. The liquid tours do not run every day due to our distilling and bottling schedule – so please book your slot in advance and make sure you let us know how many people are in your party so we can manage numbers and social distancing.
To find out dates and times, drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know when you’d like to come and we will check the diary to see what’s possible. And if you’re staying locally, please ask about our pick up and drop off service: if we can help with a lift, we will!*
*Our collection service is for over 18s only. (Except dogs. We will give a lift to dogs of all ages!)
Note: Persie Distillery is dog friendly! Nicely behaved dogs are welcome in the tasting room but sadly not in production areas.
Private Tasting Parties
If you’re keen for something bespoke for a larger party, we offer a number of personalised gin tasting options from £25 per head, ranging from a Cocktail Masterclass to Gin & Food Pairing or even a Gin Nosing & Tasting with 80 different gins from all over the world. This is ideal for hen or stag parties, birthday celebrations or family reunions.
Finally, if you’re booking a tour for a special occasion, it might be worth thinking about a personalised label for that special someone. We can create a bespoke label for your family member or friend and make sure their gin bottle is ready and waiting to present to them after the tour. Just email email@example.com and we will take all the details and work out a plan 🙂
Virtual Tour & Tasting
In these strange and uncertain times, it’s hard to stay connected. And that’s why it’s more important than ever – whether it’s with friends, family or colleagues. So we have recut our popular Persie Distillery liquid tour and transformed it into an interactive tasting experience for you to enjoy at home! Virtual family reunion, corporate ice-breaker or team-building session to boost morale? We can make it work. Just drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org with an idea of dates, numbers and budget and we will get you the information you need to make it happen!
