Stirling Distillery was launched by husband and wife Cameron and June McCann. Their journey began when they ran the ran the highly regarded Stirling Gin Festival in 2014. However, there was one thing missing - a gin from Stirling using local botanicals. In October 2015 they distilled their first bottle of Stirling Gin. Production quickly increased and 4 years later the couple opened the city's first legal distillery in The Old Smiddy - a historic building in the shadow of Stirling Castle. 2021 saw the launch of the Sons of Scotland collection of whiskies which heralds the distillery's future plans to produce its own whisky. The goal is to release their own single malt whisky in 2024.
