Theodore is an elegantly aromatic Scottish gin, powered by the spirit of the Picts, an ancient confederation of tribes that once settled near our home in Ardross, Northern Highlands.
Thought to be some of the very first settlers of Scotland, the Picts arrived on the eastern archipelago as mysterious body-painted warriors. Soon “Pictland” was home to a multitude of clans that would rule—however briefly—over the lands north of Hadrian’s Wall. Today, traces of their adventures echo only in the poetry, engravings and forgotten fortresses of Scotland.
But through the fragrant aromas of Theodore the Pictish Gin, lost memories of the Painted People are now brought to life. Fragmentary reveries of their exploits add flavour as we distil and bottle, our choice of crisp and citric botanicals invoking an appropriately Pictish sense of adventure.
Theodore Gin represents a journey of curiosity, as we forge links between ancient legends and the world we live in today. Not much is known for sure about the Picts, but that sense of mystery only whets our thirst.
