Gin Bothy Stirrup Cup

This Stirrup Cup gin was created in the Bothy, originally a Smiddy – the connection with the land made sense for them to create a gin for the equestrian lover and golfer.

Named after the Stirrup Cup known as a “Parting Cup”, it was offered to friends before they travel or ride and was also the shot golfers traditionally took at each hole.

HAND-CRAFTED: All of Gin Bothy gins originate from their small distillery in the Angus Glens.  Created in small batches of 300 bottles per distillation in a 200 litre traditional copper still the Gin Bothy hand-turns and hand-batches as part of its production process.

UNIQUE FLAVOURS: Their Scottish gin is infused with fresh Scottish apples, local honey, ginger and their classic hedgerow flower, gorse.

SIGNATURE SERVE: Great neat in a hipflask or over ice.  Alternatively serve 25cl of Stirrup Cup with sparkling apple juice or sparkling water with a hint of elderflower. Pop a sliced apple to garnish.

ABV: 37.5%

To some, a bothy is a refuge on the hills… an old stone building offering shelter when the clouds roll in or darkness looms. It’s a pause on a Highland journey, a sanctuary.  A place where travellers converge as kindred spirits, and hip flasks are passed around. A place of stories.

To others, in Scotland’s eastern lowlands, it’s a traditional home for farm workers. A source of comfort and warmth in days gone by, after a day of toil. A place for rest and reflection. To the guys at Gin Bothy, it’s all these things, and more. Their business was born into the bothy culture. Based in the Angus Glens of Scotland, they hold dear its values and traditions.

For them, it’s a way of life that resonates down the decades. One to prize, embrace and protect. Past generations in rural Scotland were proud guardians of the land, protectors of a unique heritage. In everything Gin Bothy do, they pledge to keep that connection strong. It’s why they use traditional methods of production: every bottle is numbered, batched and poured by hand. It’s why they source local produce: they use fresh Scottish berries, rhubarb and other ingredients for their fruit infused gins.

It’s why they are often found in the great Scottish outdoors, gathering pine needles, heather and other botanicals for their products. And it’s why their team of local people is proud to be packaging and dispatching Gin Bothy products to customers around the world. Even the design of their Gin Bothy bottles – strong, solid, resolute – evokes the values of old.
