AboutNorth Point Distillery

Distilled overlooking the picturesque Crosskirk Bay, North Point’s delicious coastal Gin is juniper-led, with a lovely, citrus character backing it up. In-pot macerated with a mix of 17 traditional and local botanicals such as Scots Pine, Rowan Berries, Icelandic Moss, and Sea Buckthorn.

Crosskirk Bay Gin is presented at 45.1% ABV as this strikes the perfect balance between heat and retaining those bright citrus notes. Enjoy with an Indian Tonic water and a twist of Pink Grapefruit.

Winning an outstanding 98/100 from IWSC, Gold in the World Gin Awards, 2 Stars with The Great Taste Awards 2023, Gold at the Scottish Retail Food & Drink Awards 2023, Gold with The Gin Guide for both Taste and Sustainability, and Gold with the Great British Food Awards, Crosskirk Bay Gin has been recognised as one of the best London Dry Gins in the UK for its quality and taste.
