Persie Dog Gins

We have chosen Perthshire Abandoned Dogs Society (PADS) as a dedicated charity partner and are committed to raising funds to rehome unwanted dogs through a series of ‘dog gins’ – where the breed is reflected in the gin! For every bottle sold, £1 is donated to PADS.

Labrador Gin

Like the breed, Labrador Gin is traditional, mellow, soft in the mouth and warming. It is fresh and playful up front, then soft and warming once it settles.

What makes the gin traditional is bags of juniper on the nose. What makes it soft and warming is cardamom and coriander, which rise to the surface once you add tonic.

Suggested serve: light tonic or light lemonade, a slice of lemon and some torn mint.

Spaniel Gin

Like the breed, Spaniel Gin is spirited and spicy but very gentle. This gin has great warmth and intensity with a silky soft coating.

What makes the gin spicy is the use of mace and cinnamon as dominant botanicals. The gentle finish is down to bay leave

Suggested serve: full fat tonic or ginger ale, plus a wedge of lime or a gherkin.


Dachshund Gin Liqueur

Our Dachshund expression is a lime gin liqueur. Just like the breed, it is the perfect balance of sweet and sharp! Bursting with zest, it has a long body and is best served short.

Suggested serve: On the rocks. Or add Champagne! Or greedy people can pour it over pancakes.

Dog Days Gin

In addition to our dog gins family, we also created Dog Days – our cross-breed gin! It has the traditional piney notes of Labrador, the delicate spices of Spaniel, and the fresh and fruity notes of Dachshund! For our suggested serve, try a twist of orange with a cinnamon stick.

“An outstanding experience”

“I started 2020 with a tasting tour of Persie Gin - and what an outstanding experience. I’ve never felt passionately about gin and went with a group of gin-loving friends. My opinion has been corrected. Persie makes a variety of gins and helps each visitor find a type suit their palate by teaching guests how to open the flavours with mixers and herbs. The owners could not have been more gracious and I will be back.”

“The most intimate and personal experience at a distillery”

“Probably the most intimate and personal experience at a distillery. You get to chat with the genius and his team who work hard behind this delicious gin. You can feel the passion and commitment in this family-run business. We walked away with six bottles of gin as gifts for our family and friends! Thank you guys for your time! We really enjoyed it!”

“Relaxed, welcoming, enjoyable… and dog friendly”

“My husband and I found this place by chance. We were on holiday in Perthshire and discovered the distillery’s ‘pick up & drop off’ service. What a fantastic experience this was! So relaxed, welcoming, enjoyable - and dog friendly too! Plus our four year old daughter was not left out as she thoroughly enjoyed smelling and tasting fruit juices, trying to identify the fruity smells! She really was part of the whole experience! The team was just fantastic with us all and we got to see first-hand the distilling process which was also quite remarkable. I’m quite certain we will visit again in the future!"

“I immediately fell in love with the idea of the dog gins”

"I first came across Persie Gin at Crufts and immediately fell in love with the idea of the dog gins and that you donate to a dog rescue charity. I particularly love the idea of a crossbreed gin, as my boy is a crossbreed and from a dog shelter. My wife's favourite is the Dachshund Gin Liqueur as she has a sweet tooth, but I prefer Labrador with tonic or Spaniel with tomato juice."
