Falkland Islands Distillers

Falkland Islands Distillers is a small craft distillery in Stanley. Surrounded by our pristine, rugged and truly magnificent environment, we have been distilling with local botanicals since 2016, carefully developing hand crafted gins, which capture the essence of our remote and breathtaking South Atlantic islands.

In March 2019 we were very pleased to open Philomel Distillery in Stanley and launch our first gin, Darwin’s Botanicals. This is distilled in small batches, infused with locally foraged botanicals including diddle-dee berries, tea berries and scurvy grass. 

We hope that we have created a gin to give a truly memorable and unique Falkland Islands experience and in 2021 we were delighted to be awarded a Gold Medal for Darwin's Botanicals Gin in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

In the same year we also launched our South Atlantic Kelper's Gin.  This gin is more peppery and spicy in character, with sweet salty notes infused from our local hand dived kelp, which we hope contrast and create an equally enjoyable maritime companion to Darwin's Botanicals.

The small distillery is a busy working environment, so the opening hours for the shop are managed around distilling and production work. This also includes botanical picking in late summer and early autumn, when we may be away for several days at a time.  

General Shop Opening Hours:

Thursday   12:00 - 5:00pm

Saturday    11:30 - 2:00pm

Please note that these times can vary, especially in the summer, when we may need to adjust times on days when cruise ships are visiting.  

If these times are not convenient, then please do contact us by email ( ) and we will do our very best to help.
