The 1881 Distillery - Rafters Subtly Smoked Gin is subtly smoked, distilled with locally sourced botanicals and blended with water from a private spring.

A classic piney juniper gin base has been distilled to give big hits of pink grapefruit and has subtle hints of smoke on the palate.

The inspiration for the Subtly Smoked Gin comes from 1905 when the Peebles Hydro sadly burned down.

Botanicals: hawthorn, birch, fir and citrus.

Tasting Notes

Rafters Gin lead with pink grapefruit, a touch of cinnamon and has a crisp juniper finish and a subtly smoked palate.

The perfect serve

We think that the Subtly Smoked gin is best served with over ice with a classic tonic to enjoy the complex, smoky spirit. If looking for a garnish then lime and ginger work particularly well.

Meet the maker

1881 Distillery is based in the historic Peebles Hydro Hotel in the picturesque Scottish Borders town. The hotel has a long association with tennis and in the 1920s Peebles Hydro had more tennis courts than Wimbledon. During the many tennis touraments hosted at the hotel gin and tonic was a popular tipple with the crowds so the hotel decided to create a range of gins using local botanicals and natural spring water to celebrate its past. The distillery & gin school was named after the year the Peebles Hydropathic Hotel was first opened.
