Founded in 2009, we are Aberdeen's oldest spirit brand


…to immerse yourself in the world of The House of Botanicals Gins, Dr. Adam’s Cocktail Bitters, and the Pietro Nicola Aperitivi & Digestivo


Situated underneath Aberdeen’s railway line and next door to its largest shopping centre, Union Square, The House of Botanicals is a 2500 square foot unit which is a combination of gin distillery, liqueurist, bitters manufactory, tasting room and shop.

Housed in the historic railway arches on Palmerston Road and originally opened in October 2016 solely as our production premises and bonded warehouse, the site is now open for public tours & tastings.


A boardroom, presentation room and tasting room, The Library at the House of Botanicals is home to our founder’s private collection of drinks literature and botanical based beverages; with hundred of books and an enviable collection of gins, bitters, fortified wines, amari, liqueurs, beers, and everything else in between, in residence.

The Library is an open space for bartenders to immerse themselves in all things botanical, to read, drink and learn in comfortable surroundings, while consumers are welcomed to join Adam Elan-Elmegirab and friends from the drinks industry in a variety of tutored tasting sessions coupled with a tour of our production floor.


Having been opened to the public in the January of 2020, The Library at The House of Botanicals is the central hub for our exclusive Tour & Tasting experiences.

Our sessions provide you with a unique opportunity to visit the home of one of the world’s most diverse craft spirit businesses, to learn more about our three brands, and to sample our incredible range of Gins, Cocktail Bitters, Aperitivi & Digestivo.

Advance bookings can be made via our Tour & Tasting Calendar, whilst vouchers can be purchased at our online webshop.


The Library also doubles up as our on-site shop. With delivery and Click & Collect services available via our online webshop, our tasting room also allows you to try before you buy. Please note we are a working manufactory so would recommend dropping us a message or giving us a call should you wish to sample on-site with the team.

Our range includes;

– The House of Botanicals Classic, Maple or Raspberry Old Tom Gins and the ABZ Dry Gin (5cl, 70cl or giftbags)

– Dr. Adam’s Aphrodite, Boker’s, Brazilian, Dandelion & Burdock, Orinoco Aromatic, Spanish, Teapot or Winter Spiced Bitters (all 10cl)
