Welcome to magical Millport. Our gin distillery tours bring to life the fascinating history of gin, highlighting the important role women played in the history of gin, and showcasing the colourful smuggling history of the Clyde and the history of Millport.


Relax and make yourself at home in our Scottish island gin distillery. Our tour begins with a welcome drink, a refreshing gin and tonic, made with our signature gin, Nostalgin. Nostalgin celebrates the strong emotional connection and nostalgia Millport holds in so many people's hearts, especially those who spent their childhood summers on the island in the 50's and 60's. The main botanicals of lavender, bramble and orange combine to capture the feeling of relaxation and calm that people experience on the 8-minute ferry ride to the island.

During our one-hour gin tour, we will tell you about our story; how 5 strangers met in a bar and ended up opening a gin distillery on a small Scottish island! We will introduce you to the history of gin distilling, which is packed with interesting facts and colourful characters;  and during our time together we will also tell you about the fascinating history of Millport and its important role in the smuggling history of the Clyde.
