Spoil your mom this Mother’s Day with a bottle of Arbikie Kirsty’s Gin

Once dubbed ‘Mother’s Ruin’, gin is now the go-to gift for Mother’s Day.

You won’t be ruining Mother’s Day by spoiling your mom with a bottle of Arbikie Highland Estate’s Kirsty’s Gin on May 12. Scotland’s first farm to bottle gin also happens to be named after one of the few female master distillers in the country. Kirsty’s Gin is named for Arbikie’s Kirsty Black, who developed the super-premium gin for over two years.

Embodying elements of the ocean, rock and land which reflect the estate’s environment – a 2000-acre farm on the east coast of Scotland, Kirsty’s Gin sticks to a traditional juniper base, with three traditional Scottish botanicals, Kelp, Carline Thistle and Blaeberries (all of which grow wild in the Angus area).

“All our raw materials are grown on the Arbikie Highland Estate. This means that everything is farm to bottle and of excellent quality.” Kirsty’s Gin is made from Arbikie’s award winning potato vodka, giving the gin an extra smooth and refined taste of depth and character.

“I wanted to create something truly unique with a particular focus on Scottish botanicals, inspired by the environment of the distillery and the Angus region,” said Black. “Not many distillers get the chance to have a drink named after them; so I hope gin enthusiasts enjoy drinking it as much as I enjoyed making it.”

Gin sales surged in the United Kingdom in the lead-up to their Mother’s Day in March 2019, and South Africa is sure to follow the same trend, “The gin trend is not going anywhere, and we look forward to educating the market on the fine spirits coming out of Scotland,” says Douglas and Ludgero from Covert Distributions, distributers for Arbikie gin and vodka in South Africa.

Arbikie Gin is available at Norman Goodfellows, Spar Tops, Bar Keeper, Woodstock Liquors, Roeland Liquors, Liquor City, BottleShop.co.za and Blue Bottle Liquors for a RRP of R549
