Craft Gin distillery with iStill – West Highlands of Scotland
PIXEL SPIRITS distillery is set in the scenic grounds of the Loch Leven Hotel in North Ballachulish, Scottish Highlands.
The Pixel Spirits Distillery is true to craft, being self built from the shell of a 17th century A frame barn. We have painstakingly labored to restore our barn and upgraded it to the standards of a current new build. With our team we have fully insulated and provided the former farm buildings with a new lease of life, ready to meet the demands of a contemporary craft distillery and its team.
Led by Craig, our master distiller, we hand forage botanicals in the local area to create our artisan gins. All our products are carefully handcrafted in small batches of less than 100 bottles – Every bottle we produce is genuinely special!
Our iStill, nicknamed Orsetta (little bear), was chosen to create our delicate and taste rich expressions for the outset. We chose to work with iStill as they are inspirational, constantly evolving their own processes and looking for new ways to better their own technology which in turn leads to development in our fantastic portfolio. They optimize the ethos that just because something has been done the same way for centuries, doesn’t mean that it can’t be improved upon. They are an exciting and forward thinking brand pushing the development of new ideas that ultimately lead to a better quality of product for you!
When you look at Orsetta, and her clean contemporary form, you may notice that she is constructed from Stainless Steel, this was chosen as it is more durable than traditional copper. She is bound by a black insulated jacket which means the whole distillation process is more thermally efficient and that cost saving means that our products can be produced with less heat loss which is not only better for the environment but leads to a better price for our customers.
