our passion our story

Founded by two brothers, both armed forces veterans and a hogmanay challenge to blend the ultimate whisky liqueur. The resultant Heidrun began a journey into the intricacies of & joys of blending, compounding, shop fitting, broom handling, form filling & distilling.

Today a visit to the Spirit of Bute micro distillery & shop highlights the passion & love poured into these unique products & locations. Visit us in store to see more of our hand crafted gin, whisky & liqueurs. Watch the stills in action or have a blether with one of our distillers.
