Lost Loch Spirits School

Travelling through Royal Deeside to get to the distillery, you’ll start to get a flavour of the natural beauty and local history that surrounds and inspires the team every day.

We’ll show you round our craft distillery, sharing how the adventure began and the fascinating stories behind each of our unique products, from Scotland’s first absinthe Murmichan to a very special family recipe, Haroosh. You’ll discover the art of distilling, guided by our expert team, using our fabulous individual copper stills and the intriguing Wall of Botanicals. You might end up with a signature gin or even an absinthe, you’ll discover your inner distiller and we’ll help you create a personalised bottle of your own spirit to take home.

Lost Loch Spirits School is perfect for a memorable day out, team event or holiday experience. Lunch is included as well as tastings of all our products. We do need a minimum of four people to run the School, however if you’d like to book one or two places, you can get a gift voucher and we’ll join you up with others to make it happen on a suitable date.

Our Spirits School is award-winning, wouldn’t you like to come and find out why? From the warm welcome to the cheery goodbye, this experience is one you’ll remember and want to repeat.

My Husband bought me a birthday trip to Spirit School for myself and a friend, (best husband ever!!!). We had the greatest experience, Richard talked us through the scientific parts and recipe hints and then let us loose botanical shopping. The equipment and surroundings are really beautiful, I love copper. They were very thoughtful and kept us hydrated throughout. We came away from the experience with a better appreciation of the hard work the Lost Loch Spirits team put into their award-winning spirits, our very own designer Gins, and a day to remember full of giggles.
I have recommended everyone to go and create their own at Lost Loch
