“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 are a 10 minute drive from Blairgowrie and only a forty minute drive from Perth, Dundee, Braemar, Dunkeld or Pitlochry. If you’re nearby 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 take a seat and try them all, it costs £9 per head for a Sample Paddle of six gins and matching mixers – plus three cheeky special editions if you’d like to try them! A Softie Sample Paddle costs £5 per head and is a real hit with children.
Book a Tour
Our Liquid Tour is hugely popular! For £20 per head, you will receive a flight of 6 x 10ml samples of gin with a range of mixers and garnishes, plus – if you wish – a Red Snapper cocktail taster, Dog Days special edition, Persie Pusscat Vodka and our popular Sloe & Plum Gin! After the flight we will take you behind the scenes on a guided tour, showing you where everything happens on site, from recipe development to distilling and bottling. The duration is very flexible but for most visitors the Liquid Tour tends to last about an hour and a half – sometimes longer for larger groups.
Drivers are welcome to take samples home in paper cups. Or if you’d like a lift we will send you information on transport as soon as you book so you can investigate local options.
Finally – and most importantly – Persie Distillery is dog friendly! Nicely behaved dogs are welcome in the tasting room but sadly not in production areas.
Please book by using the calendar below – and make sure you let us know how many people are in your party so we can manage numbers. If there aren’t enough spaces left for your party on your preferred day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see if we can squeeze any more in!
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 to present to them after the tour. All you have to do is go to our web shop at least three working days in advance and place your order. And remember! Choose Click & Pick at checkout so you are not charged shipping – and please put the date of your tour in the delivery comment box so we know when to have your bottle ready and waiting. Link below to have a look at what we can do.
Personalised Persie Bottle
On 24 March and 5 May we are running a Friday Night Cocktail Masterclass. And if you’re a fan of an espresso martini, you’re in good hands – our friends from Little Birdie coffee roasters in Alyth are keen to demonstrate how to fuse the best of both worlds: high-end coffee and cocktail culture. In our two-hour cocktail masterclass distiller and mixologist Simon will show you how to get hands-on behind the bar with confidence, mixing and muddling three different cocktails with our award-winning premium spirits. And because everyone is different, you choose your cocktails to suit your palate!
The cocktail masterclass is £32.00 per head and includes some fabulous Little Birdie coffee to take away. Transport is available from Blairgowrie on 24 March and Alyth on 5 May. Book though our web shop or click the link below.
