City of Aberdeen Distillery is owned and run by two friends, Dan and Alan. The distillery opened its
doors in December 2019, proudly reviving Aberdeen’s lost distilling heritage. The last distillery
(Strathdee Distillery) closed its doors way back in 1941 – a pause of almost 80 years.
Situated in the heart of the city, within a historic railway arch, visitors can discover the operational
distillery, the Aberdeen Gin School and a retail environment offering samples and the ability for
visitors to take home a bottle, filled directly from a selection of gin-filled French glass demi-johns.
The distillery produces a range of small batch, full-flavoured, limited edition, Scottish Gins with all
distilling taking place right here in the heart of the city.
The distillery have recently been announced as finalists in the Scottish Gin Awards for five of their
Aberdeen distilled gins and have been also been shortlisted in two business categories.
