A Banchory retail unit has recently been opened by award-winning Deeside Distillery as a craft drinks hub.
ABV Craft Drinks was launched to highlight the range and quality of craft drinks made in Scotland, by a team who are equally passionate about the industry. With a current stock of over 125 gins, the shop continues to add to this collection weekly, and will shortly be launching an online Scottish gin shop. The Banchory shop also boasts a large selection of craft beers, selected wines and a growing whisky selection.
With regular ‘meet the maker’ events, the emphasis is on learning about true Scottish products. The new shop has already proven popular with locals and visitors to the area and aims to o er a friendly and educational experience with its selected craft drinks from around Scotland.
Shop co-owner, Wil Aitken said, ‘We always aim to find drinks that our customers are hoping to track down, as well as giving them the chance to ‘meet the makers’ at our events. We hope the shop will become a hub of activity for craft drink enthusiasts who live in, or are visiting the area.’
Available to purchase from the shop, Deeside Distillery’s ’Uncut’gin won the prestigious gold award for Navy Strength Gin of the year at the Scottish Gin Awards held in Glasgow on Thursday 20 September. The awards, now in their second year, celebrate innovation and excellence in Scottish gin production.
As one of just four Scottish distilleries to produce the base spirit for its gin entirely onsite, the Deeside Distillery team is passionate about developing an innovative range of spirits and avours with a local origin.
The shop is run by the owners of Deeside Distillery and Dusk Bar in Aberdeen and is open 7 days a week.
