    About Craft56°
    Scottish craft drinks

    The idea for Craft56° was born on a visit to a bar & bottle shop in New York City in September 2016.

    During a conversation with a barman in a craft beer shop I realised how passionate I am about Scotland and the amazing products that are produced here and that these are not celebrated enough.

    At Craft56°, we are dedicated to promoting Scottish drinks, bringing together quality gins & other spirits, gifts and mixers from small batch, artisan producers from all over Scotland.

    Our aim is to work directly with the independent producers to deliver drinks that are otherwise not widely available direct to your door (or desk!).

    Our craft gin discovery club is a great way for you to try new styles and flavours that you may not have the chance to experience otherwise. We also stock a range of gifts and gift sets that mean that no matter the occasion you’ll never be stuck for a gift for the gin lover in your life again!



    Make a weekend out of your visit to the Bute Gin Festival 2020 in association with Craft56°.

    If you like the idea of a break on the island haven of Bute, The Glenburn Hotel is a grand and elegant choice for your stay.

    The hotel is set in a prime position atop delightful terraced gardens and was originally constructed in 1892 as a hydrotherapy retreat. It commands fabulous views overlooking Rothesay Bay and the Cowal Peninsula. Within the hotel, you will find 119 bedrooms all of which have been recently refurbished.

    Relax with a drink in the welcoming bar or perhaps enjoy a game of snooker. After dinner in the restaurant, a unique and varied programme of top class live entertainment will keep you entertained in the beautifully restored ballroom.
