The Bramble is the name given to a rough, tangled prickly shrub which normally bears its’ fruit, either blackberries, raspberries or dewberries, in late Summer and Autumn. Bramble can also lend its’ name to the blackberry fruit or products produced using it, such as our beautiful Bramble Highland Gin.
Fassfern Gin's are proud to bring a simple but luxurious Highland Gin. Heather has been used to express various meanings throughout history - love, independence, safety, strength so we bottled it up to give you a trully magical Highland Gin.

Fassfern Highland Gin's
The Gaelic for Fassfern is Am Fasadh Fearna, which means Alderwood resting place.
Fassfern is a hamlet on the north shore of Loch Eil in the district of Lochaber in the Scottish Highlands. It sits at the bottom of Glen Suileag and historically was part of Clan Cameron territory. Situated just off the A830, approximately 6 miles west of Fort William heading towards Mallaig.
I bought both the Fassfern Dry Gin and the Bramble Gin after hearing about them from my friend John who was over in Glenfinnan on holiday last week.
I believe he knew your neighbour who works in a hotel. He insisted I buy both gins as they are both fantastic.
He certainly wasn’t wrong!
Both gins are absolutely fantastic.
The Highland Gin is outstanding. Citrus notes, slight spice on the aftertaste and incredibly smooth.
The Bramble Gin was a surprise. It doesn’t smell like it’s going to taste. It’s got a nice nose to it but the taste of it is incredible!
It’s just like biting into a bramble. One of the best Scottish gins I’ve ever tasted and I’ve got over 70 Scottish gins.
Keep up the good work. I’m going to follow your progress very closely. Very impressive.
