World Gin Day | Aberdeen's 6 best gin bars

Rye & Soda

With Jindea single estate tea gin as the house serve, Rye & Soda is a good place to start! If the sun is shining you can even enjoy a G&T from the lengthy list of American, Scottish, dry, "interesting" or flavoured gins out on the terrace. Check out the 10 Dollar Shake tasting academy for an in depth lesson in the spirit, either at Rye & Soda or along the road at The Tippling House!

The Craftsman Company

With it's wide selection of Scottish gins, The Craftsman Company is the perfect place for a perfect serve. A laidback rustic but modern interior with large communal tables, it's ideal for a lunch time pit stop or a catch up with friends. My gin of choice here is Shetland Reel, served with light Fever Tree tonic and a hefty wedge of grapefruit in a giant balloon glass!
