Gin Bothy doubles production facility with new premises


Award-winning spirits manufacturer Gin Bothy is moving to new premises in Forfar which doubles the size of their original premises in Kirriemuir, tripling production capabilities and brings all Bothy brands under one roof.

Founded in 2015 by ‘accidental gin-maker’ Kim Cameron, the brand led the charge for Scottish and flavoured gins, becoming one of Scotland’s best known premium gin and rum brands producing over 65,000 units each year sold across the UK and exported internationally. It will continue to operate the shop and Bothy visitor experience at Glamis, with the new premises allowing increased production of Gin Bothy, as well as Hipflask Spirits and the Jam Bothy.

Gin Bothy founder, Kim Cameron said, “With a growing team and demand for our products, our office and storage space simply needed to grow to support demand. This is an incredibly exciting move for the team as the Forfar facility gives us room to expand, create several more jobs and means we don’t have to outsource warehousing.

“Our Jam Bothy range has been incredibly popular with wholesale accounts throughout Scotland. The move means we are still in Angus where we source our fruit from local farmers, but it allows us to triple production and gives us the space to take fruit straight from the field to a jar of jam as we have more storage. It also means a new Bothy Larder shop with our full range across all brands will open its doors this October.

“However, what’s key is that there is more room for creativity. There are several upcoming collaborations, new flavours and products the Bothy team are working on which we’re really excited to announce later this year.”

Kim added, “I’m incredibly passionate about the role food and drink plays in the growth of the Scottish economy. Since Gin Bothy began the industry has seen exports double with gin now one of the best performing sectors.”
