Gin tasting onboard our heritage diesel hauled train.

This service is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. Please arrange suitable transport home, do not drink and drive.

In partnership with the Gin bothy, the Caledonian Railway invites you for a very special experience. Travel through the Angus Countryside onboard a heritage diesel hauled train whilst sampling a selection of premium spirits, hand-crafted in the Angus Glens of Scotland. Infused with tradition, but with a contemporary twist.

Enjoy the gin you have been sampling? Bottles of The Gin Bothy's hand-crafted gins will be available to purchase from the bar once the train has arrived back at Brechin.

All seats are arranged in tables of four - if you book four seats, you will be seated together, if you book two or singles, you will may be seated with another party.
