THE BREWDOG DISTILLING CO.

We set up the BrewDog Distillery Co. to go it alone and to run against the pack. To make a difference and to make our spirits differently. To challenge everything that has come before. To make pure craft spirits shaped by our community and to put craftsmanship at the heart of our process. We believe the finest ingredients and exacting process make the best spirit, and that practice makes perfect spirits. We are committed to own every step. To push the parameters of what a spirit can be using the perfect culmination of art and science. We want to define what craftsmanship means in the 21st century.

DISTILLATION

Example Image

THE MALT

Our spirits start life as a 50:50 malt wheat and malt barley mash piped straight from our brewery.

DISTILLATION

We then start distillation in the world's only triple bubble still. Allowing massive copper contact and resulting in a 91% ABV hi-wine. The spirit passes through the lampglass still before heading into the 60 plate, 18 metre rectification column.

PURIFICATION

PURIFICATION

The higher it goes the purer it gets and the higher the ABV - ending in a 96.4% vodka. Our master distiller gets to the heart of the spirit, discarding the heads and tails.

FILTRATION

The pure spirit is transferred into the column to ensure any residues of methanol, diacetyl or aldehyde are removed. And a single carbon filter gives total purification.

BOTANICALS

DILUTION

Our pure vodka is diluted with de-ionised water to 40% ABV and laid in tank for 4-5 days. Only then does our gin journey begin. Through an exacting process of science and craft, we add our botanicals.

BOTANICALS

We infuse juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root, cardamom, pink peppercorn, Thai lemon grass, Kaffir lime leaf, mace, almond, fresh lemon peel, fresh pink grapefruit peel, lavender, orris root and Scots pine needles in our gin. 

Only then are our native sons ready to be released into the world.
