Our Story

What is a Foghouse?

Taking our inspiration from the Foghouses found on large Scottish estates; sanctuaries to escape the ordinary; to savour a view, to contemplate or to unwind.

These traditional Scottish sanctuaries were built by Lairds to frame their favourite view on the estate. The Lairds would then cover the ground with a moss, known as Fog in Scots, to create a carpeted layer to relax in comfort. They would escape to these secluded retreats to relax in the natural beauty of their surroundings, far away from the rigours of daily life. They are a serene place of peace, somewhere to contemplate and unwind far away from the pace of a hectic world.

To us, a Foghouse is a moment captured in time; evoking memories of your greatest adventure, a breath-taking vista or day never to be forgotten.

What's your Foghouse moment?

Foghouse Spirits

We believe there are but a few key ingredients to a successful drinks brand: authenticity, distinctiveness, charisma, and the ability to make an emotional connection with the drinker.

Foghouse Spirits are carefully crafted and selected to evoke a memory or an occasion with a single sip, tempting you on a journey to escape the ordinary.

Founder Mike Stuart and his passionate team craft, distil, select and bottle the finest small batch premium gin, whisky and rum in our very own Foghouse, a secluded location on the edge of the Cairngorms in Royal Deeside, a place of outstanding natural beauty.

It’s here, tucked away from the hustle and pace of city life, that we take time to pursue small batch spirits that will create that Foghouse moment; escapism in a glass.
