Fancy a tipple? You’ve come to the right place. Let's Talk Gin. Every drop of 1881 Gin is taken from our own private spring – Shieldgreen – the very same spring that drew people to ‘take the waters’ at Peebles Hydro when we opened our doors in 1881. Today, the draw is rather different: Shieldgreen now supplies the gleaming copper stills of our distillery and our attendant gin school. Along with many of the botanicals grown here in the grounds and our very own tonic water, 1881 Gin is trickled, nurtured and perfected by Peebles. Meet the 1881 Gin Family here.

Home to over 90 different kinds of gin, it’s hard not to love our Gin Palace. Slap bang in the middle of our hallway, it’s pretty hard to miss. The hardest part will be picking your tipple. Relax in the lounge or sun room, and if you’re lucky you might even get to catch some sun outside.
