Our distillery is based on the beautiful Kincardine Castle Estate on Royal Deeside, the first gin distillery in Aberdeenshire!
We are often asked where our name (Esker) comes from. While it might sound Scandinavian - it’s not.
An esker is a ridge created by a glacier and our distillery sits on such a ridge and benefits from spectacular views. Right in the heart of Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire and on the North East 250 route.
If you close your eyes and imagine what the Highlands of Scotland look like, you’ll come pretty close to our views.
We are rarely alone while we’re working at the distillery. Deer, pheasants and even Highland cows make regular appearances outside.
