Eight Lands Organic Speyside Gin & Vodka – Serves Worth Enjoying

Scotland has a multitude of gems within its lands with one of the biggest gems, being its whisky industry. But as time has passed, the creativity with spirits has grown in some incredible ways over the years.

Scotland isn’t just all about Highlands, Lowlands, Islay’s and Speyside whisky’s anymore. Because if you dig just a little deeper you’ll find gins, and even vodka knocking about those beautiful shores.

Which brings us swiftly into Eight Lands, a family owned and run business who produce premium white spirits from their Glenrinnes distillery. A distillery set up in the foot of the of the Ben Rinnes mountain, which gave birth to their two new organic expressions:
