Darnley’s Gin
Very Berry is a limited edition gin inspired by the botanicals that grow wild in Fife, Scotland.

It is the first in the ‘Cottage Series’ created by Darnley’s Distiller, Scott Gowans. He took inspiration from the local area where he spent time growing up and in particular, the countryside where the distillery sits, to select the signature botanicals in Very Berry: sloe berry, rosehip, elderberry and sugar kelp.

North Uist Distillery

It can be sipped straight over ice or enjoyed paired with a premium tonic, lots of ice and garnished with heather, raspberries and brambles.
