This is a place of rolling fields, dense woodland and the ever-present Ben Rinnes mountain. This spacious, rugged and captivating landscape is the home of Glenrinnes Distillery.
The distillery is situated on a family-run estate in the heart of Scotch whisky country, between the Highlands and the River Spey. The estate is spread over more than 6,000 acres of Scottish countryside. It is the perfect environment for rearing award-winning, organic cattle, sheep and deer. Developed from a simple passion for naturally produced food, the estate has been an accredited producer of organic livestock since 2001.
Today the Glenrinnes Distillery creates award-winning organic vodka and gin. The pursuit of quality is directly inspired by Speyside’s rich whisky heritage. Where organic ingredients cannot be grown or foraged themselves, they source the best from elsewhere. No GM crops. No pesticides. Responsibility, sustainability and respectfulness are at the heart of Glenrinnes.
This ethos stands behind the decision to create Eight Lands spirits from 100% organic ingredients and their accreditation ensures that there are high levels of traceability from grain to glass. In essence, this means that Eight Lands spirits are produced with ingredients that are of the highest quality and sustainably sourced.
Organic means the ingredients are free of pesticides, of which there are usually 300 in use. This means less chemicals, less force growing, and ultimately more natural-tasting products. It also has benefits to ecology.
