Founded in 2015, Esker is about embracing provenance and innovation to produce spirits with a deep flavour experience that the consumer can really taste. Classic but full flavoured gins, complimented by mixers and garnish, not defined by them. We use locally sourced silver birch sap as our key botanical, the only Scottish gin to do so. Our distillery is located on the beautiful Kincardine Castle Estate on Royal Deeside, Scotland.
In 2017 we doubled the size of our distillery premises and increased our production capacity by 400%, with further expansion planned.
Our gins have won 20 major taste awards in the last 2 years. Esker Gin was the only Scottish craft gin to win Gold at the 2017 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC), and Esker Honey Spiced Gin was the only Scottish craft gin to win Gold at the 2018 IWSC. Both are recipients of multiple Great Taste awards.
Our Silverglas range takes inspiration from our award winning Silverglas London Dry, a light refreshing gin with notes of citrus and mint. Silverglas was designed to be a premium gin at a more affordable price-point. The Silverglas range carries forward this ethos. It now includes Silverglas Valencian Orange and Silverglas Scottish Raspberry, made with real fruit, they packed full of natural flavour and colour.
All our spirits are distilled and bottled in our own Aberdeenshire distillery.
