    A small insight into the process of making Hills and Harbour Gin from Crafty Distillery. Great place to stop and take in the distillery experience when you are exploring the South West Coastal 300 or just Visiting South West Scotland. Lovely views of the Galloway Hills are an added bonus.
    Don't forget to come and see us at the Ballantrae Festival of Food and Drink on June 8th and 9th.

    #SWC300Going the rare extra mile to craft a unique spirit to add to every batch of our #hillsandharbourgin begins by us taking local wheat grain, which we mill by hand on site. The milled grain is mashed, fermented and distilled to deliver a smooth and unique base for us to distill again with our carefully selected blend of 11 botanicals. Come and visit our ‘Scottish Gin Destination of the Year’ to discover how we are creating tasty and honest spirits for everyone who likes a tipple. #puttingthegraftincraft #madetasty #craftydistillery #visitgalloway #visitdumfriesandgalloway
