"Kerr’s Gin – every drop made from Scottish Borders barley, and every grain grown within 30 miles of the distillery in Hawick
William Kerr was born in Hawick in the Scottish Borders in 1779, and developed a passion for plants and gardening. In 1804 he travelled to Asia where he gained a reputation as a plant hunter. He sent 238 plant specimens back to Kew Gardens from his travels.
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."
