Gin-credible news from Peebles Hydro

Our sister hotel, Peebles Hydro, is making a big splash with the opening of the brand new 1881 Distillery and Gin School.

Meet the 1881 Gin Family

Made in Peebles. Made by Peebles. You can’t get more local than your own private water source. The water that flows from Shieldgreen (famed for it’s hydropathic properties back in the 1800’s) now feeds 1881 Distillery’s 150l copper still ‘Felicity’ making not one but four 1881 Gins – London Dry, Pavilion Pink, Honours Gin and Rafters Gin. You can find 1881 Gin and Tonic in all of our bars and restaurants. In 2020, 1881 created a new look for the gin bottles. Every aspect of the label reflects the story, history and heritage of the gin, read all about it here.

Just the tonic!

It wouldn’t be the perfect serve without Tonic 81. The-not-so-secret ingredient? Shieldgreen. Pick from Premium, Light, Pink Grapefruit or Elderflower.
