The distillery

Nestled amongst pine trees in the heart of the Scottish Highlands sits Strathmashie Distillery, located within an area of outstanding natural beauty at the geographical centre of Scotland in the Cairngorms National Park.

The distillery is situated within the grounds of Strathmashie House, a Victorian shooting lodge visited by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in the summer of 1847 and is the brand home of Daffy’s Gin.

'Strath’ is derived from the gaelic word ’srath' meaning a wide open valley. The River Mashie flows through the area and is the source of the exceptional water for the distillery.


The distillery offers residential accommodation and various gin making and foraging experiences. For further information on the Daffy’s Gin School and to check availability click here.
