Fun fact: 70% of the gin made in the UK is produced in Scotland! With the craft gin scene expanding as rapidly as it is we are pretty spoiled for choice! Read more about the craft gin scene over at Scottish Gin Distilleries and Tastings, and make sure you cast your vote below!

    I was torn between Harris gin and Caorunn (but voted for Harris). 

    I have three fave's in my pantry - Harris gin, Caorunn and Orkney Johnsmas gin. All very different.

    I like Edinburgh Gin--and they do nice tours as well.

    Rock Rose for me but it's a close run thing. Jura gin is amazing as is The Botanist, Harris and too many others for me to name. Scottish gin is the finest out there. 
    I'm a Scottish travel blogger and freelance writer with an extensive knowledge of travelling in Scotland.  I'm always on the road exploring my wonderful country.  I love remote places, history and the great outdoors.

    Porter's Gin from Aberdeen has a good reputation and may be worth a taste.

    I am a bit of a Gin lover ! Harris .Gin is one of my favourites , However the design of the bottle is something to behold ! My next favourite is Wild Island Gin  (WIG for short )from Colonsay the Gin has a unique flavour and is well worth tasting again this bottle is unique with colours representing the botanicals in this .Gin . Another one on my lGin list is Lussa Gin from Jura and this is one for the ladies ---well that's my view ! Again it is made with Island botanicals from Jura and it is also infused with rose petals This Gin is made by  three ladies on Ardlussa estate on the North of the Island   A gorgeous Gin ! And is made in very small batches . My next one which is new this year is from the Isle of Tiree and the Gin is called Tyree Gin note the spelling !a little bit of history to this spelling .  It is made with a unique kelp found in the sea off Tiree This is also a great wee Gin. NB Gin is another superb Gin made to a London Dry recipe it is GOOD and is made North Berwick East Lothian . The Botanist was the first Scottish Gin I tasted years ago , I find it quite intense it's all the botanicals ! The distillery near Port Charlotte Islay started Gin  tours this year and you make your own cocktails as part of the tour . I was over in .May this year and did the .Gin tour and the cocktail making was fun ! If you come to Scotland on Holiday try some Gins ! Slainte !

    I love Persie Distillery's zesty citrus gin.  It's from Glenshee and comes in very pretty bottles too!
