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.
Whats in store
Our Rothesay shop stocks our Ettrick & Rothesay standard gins alongside our liqueurs such as our world famous Heidrun whisky liqueur and an ever changing range of gin, vodka & rum liqueurs. We also stock quality whisky, rum, gin, absinthe, tequila & other spirits from around Scotland.
In store you can also pickup barware such as glasses, measures, bitters alongside your cocktail essentials such as olives, vermouths, mixers & garnishes. We also stock branded merchandise & local gifts celebrating the best of the Isle of Bute & Scotland.
Made on Bute
We are rightly very proud of our wee island and all that the Isle of Bute produces. Wherever possible we source & grow locally. Everything we do, we do right here on Bute. We find, peel, weigh, taste, measure, test, bottle, cap, design, print & label - all by hand, all in house on the Isle of Bute.
We are a small family business that lives, spends & enjoys all that our magical island & vibrant community has to offer & love to share that passion with our visitors. We also really appreciate you supporting small independent businesses like Spirit of Bute.

Fantastic shop. I've bought gin and hoodies from the shop. Also had a hoodie and T-shirt posted to me. The hoodies are so soft and warm and the bramble gin is my favourite. Fantasic service I'll definately be in when we're back in August. Thank you
