Illicit is an urban craft distillery with a hands-on fascination for boldly exploring and reinterpreting classic ideas, with a mission to make memorable, unique, contemporary drinks.

Based in a re-purposed railway arch under train tracks that serve Glasgow’s famous Central Station, we embrace the city’s industrial heritage and DIY-ethos.

Inspired by tradition, we continually look to the past — but always with a critical eye, without reverence or nostalgia. Taking the best from history and finding a way to interpret it that’s interesting or unexpected.

All our spirits are made by hand in small batches, with a direct-fired copper pot still, and aged on-site.
