William Kerr’s Borders Gin
William Kerr’s Borders Gin is 100% made in Scotland – juniper berries and botanicals gently steamed in the vapour of our own barley spirit.
As an accomplished botanist, we think Kerr would have quietly approved of our Carterhead Still – one of only a handful in operation. Unlike regular gin stills, the Carterhead gently steams the botanicals rather than boiling them, capturing more of the subtle aromas and complex flavours. Together with the barley base, this creates a gin of distinctive depth and character.
Enjoy Kerr’s Borders Gin poured over ice, with a good tonic water, and a slice of orange.
Here at The Borders Distillery, we’re obsessed with quality – from barley to bottle. We only ever use locally-grown barley, all harvested from 11 farms lying within 20 miles of the distillery.
The distillery draws its water from an underground lake beneath the site. The lake’s water takes between 50 and 70 years to filter down from the hills through the rock. Even if it never rained again (unlikely in the Borders!) the lake contains enough pure water to last the distillery the next 185,000 years.
