Crafty Distillery

With revealing and engaging tours, award-winning spirits, Crafty Distillery has something for everyone.

Founded in 2017 by Graham Taylor, Crafty Distillery has earned a reputation for delivering big on quality & taste. Creative thinking and hard work sit at the core of what it takes to deliver on the promise of ‘craft’.

Built by his father Billy, this unique and modern distillery, is like no other. Set on a hillside with far reaching views to the Galloway Hills, the warm and inviting tasting room is the perfect place to relax and enjoy Crafty’s range of tasty spirits. Every year they welcome over 25,000 visitors to learn the secrets of their process.

The modern building is clad in local larch wood inside and out, delivering a warm and inviting space to enjoy. Nestled on the edge of Newton Stewart the modern grain to glass distillery pumps out gallons of tasty stuff and delivers panoramic views over the Galloway Hills.

The distillery shop features a truly unique ‘Tree Bar’. Made with a single piece of local Douglas Fir tree and weighing in at over 3 tonnes, it makes a striking centrepiece to the retail area, where you’ll find all the award-winning spirits, branded gifts and premium mixers.

Take your taste buds on a tour of this award-winning distillery, where you’ll learn the secrets of the process for their vibrant gins, pure vodka and Single Malt Scotch Whisky plans.

After the tour you’ll then be taking on a guided tasting through 3 x perfect serves of their spirits. You’ll get to enjoy a smooth & vibrant Hills & Harbour Gin, the fruity Hills & Harbour Distilled Gin Cocktail and then a silky smooth limited 24Seven Vodka, all while enjoying the amazing views over the Galloway hills.

Tour timings run at 11:30am & 1:30pm, Wednesday to Saturday. All tours must be booked in advance.
