Gin distillery’s delightful and historic setting

December 9 2017

Amid the current mushrooming growth of gin distilleries, I have long intended to visit one. That finally came to pass some weeks ago when I saw a gin distillery that, for all it was in the most delightful and historic setting, reminded more of a medieval alchemist’s workshop than a 21st Century distillery.

Restaurant Reviews

Gracie’s, Broughty Ferry (39/50)

December 2 2017

If you're out for coffee and cake or a spot of lunch then Broughty Ferry really is the place to go. The little seaside town is teeming with coffee shops and restaurants and there seems to be enough customers to go around as the majority of them are usually fairly busy.

The boiler is the beating heart of a distillery

December 2 2017

The beating heart of any distillery is not the stills, or washbacks, or mashtun or the casking store. It is the distillery boiler, without which the distillery grinds to a halt. Hot water and steam are needed throughout the production process and, if the boiler packs up, so does the distillery.
