“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 £6 per head for a sample session.
Book a Tour
If you’re keen for a full tour and gin tasting, please make sure to book in advance. 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 in advance. 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!*
Enquire about a Private Tasting
If you’re keen for something bespoke, we offer a number of personalised gin tasting options from £20 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 🙂
*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.
Directions to Persie Distillery
Travelling north on the A93, pass the Bridge of Cally Hotel on your left and drive straight on for 1.5 miles. Continue for 200 yards past the drive with the ‘Persie’ sign and it is the white house and steading immediately on your left. Follow the brown tourist sign instead of the sat nav!
Travelling south on the A93, pass the road on your right signed B950 to Kirkmichael. Do not turn off, but drive straight on for 3 miles, and it is the white house and steading on your right. Just look out for the brown tourist sign.
