Natural Whiskey

Company profile

BIRKENTREE is the old Scots word for Birch tree and the original Birchwater dedicated to whisky. It has been created by four friends - Rob, Gabrielle, Elspeth and Euan - to fill a gap in the market as a natural mixer for whisky.

Our Birchwater imparts a smoothness and elegance in a way which complements and enhances fine single malts.

When you mix birchwater and whisky together, something magical happens. Far from diluting it, the birchwater elevates the whisky and highlights nuances in the flavour, allowing you to see a new side to your favourite single malt.

Our Founder Directors, Rob Clamp (a professional forester) and his wife Gabrielle (a herbalist), have an intimate knowledge of forestry, native Scottish species and plants. They select carefully only the most venerable birch trees which range in age from one hundred to three hundred years old as they produce the smoothest and finest Birchwater.

We at BIRKENTREE believe that less is always more. Our entirely natural birchwater whisky mixer is hand tapped and bottled without a single addition. The result is simple, natural and yet exceptional.

Other than the exciting prospect of a new dedicated natural mixer for the world of whisky, one of the most compelling aspects of our product is its ancient place within Scottish history.

It’s fair to say there may be a degree of scepticism when an entirely new mixer makes its debut, particularly one for adding to the finest whiskies.

We at BIRKENTREE are in the business of adding without distracting, diluting or detracting from the main event your cherished whisky. To try it, is to understand it. 


BIRKENTREE’s delicate texture adds a notably smooth and refined finish to your whisky. Indeed we were struck by the alchemy which was achieved when we first combined whisky with BIRKENTREE - our eureka moment!

BIRKENTREE’s signature experience comes from the complex make up within the Birchwater itself. It contains active enzymes which must be reawakened with a vigorous shake of the bottle.]


In the words of Max McFarlane, leading Whisky Maker, “BIRKENTREE Birchwater adds a unique refined smoothness to your whisky. The link to the heritage of Scotch Whisky, along with BIRKENTREE’s natural provenance, makes for a very exciting development in the world of whisky.”

"Lagavulin but not as you’ve seen it before." Dave Broom

No matter which whisky you choose to pair BIRKENTREE with, you'll discover the alchemy that happens when the birchwater marries with your favourite single malt.
