Handcrafted dry gin produced with 100% Scottish juniper and rosehip.

Crossbill Gin is a celebration of juniper and rosehip, two bold and fresh Highland botanicals. Made using only 100% Scottish hand picked botanicals, we have re-established a long lost tradition of harvesting Scottish juniper. We believe this creates a distinct taste evocative of the ancient pine forests where juniper has grown for centuries.

 
 

Scottish Juniper - a return to tradition

In the 18th century Scotland’s fragrant juniper was exported to Holland to produce Jenever (gin's great, great grandfather). This tradition died out 200 years ago but Crossbill’s founder Jonathan was captivated by the idea of reviving Scottish juniper harvesting to produce a new gin.

Now, with the help of the Forestry Commission and PlantLife.org, Crossbill has revived Scotland's juniper production and is delighted to be able to produce the only gin to use 100% Scottish juniper.

 
 

We'll be coming round the mountain...

Getting slightly closer to sea level doesn't affect the crisp refreshment of Crossbill Gin...

We recently moved to the legendary Barrowlands, in the east end of Glasgow.

Our purpose built facility at Barras Art and Design allows us to expand and increase the volumes of each batch we produce.

This great space has also allowed us to start up our Gin School, offering you the chance to sample straight from the still and to create your own custom Crossbill blends.

The Hatchery Laboratory & Gin School

From March 2017 Crossbill will be hosting a Gin school at our new eating, drinking and event venue in the East End of Glasgow.  

Join us to create your very own bottle of gin from scratch.  Under the watchful eye of Crossbill Gin founder and award winning distiller Jonathan Engels, you will test and select your botanicals, create a botanical basket, then distill your very own gin in a miniature copper pot still.  Finally your bottle will be labelled with your bespoke design.   

And for a very limited time a friend can accompany you for no extra charge. We are offering the first 25 tickets for £85, for two people, instead of £115. Grab them quick before they go!

Voucher price includes:

- Your unique 70cl bottle gin to take home

- Complimentary Crossbill gin and Fever tree for the voucher holder and their friend.

- Instruction and talk from Crossbill founder Jonathan Engels
