Small-batch, hand-crafted gin from the Gordon Castle along the River Spey, featuring botanicals grown in the estate's Walled Garden. Mint, lavender and gooseberry are among the botanical selection, giving this crisp gin a floral, fresh palate.
Tasting Note: The Gin is crisp elegant and refreshing with a lovely clean palate. Subtle notes of lavender linger at the back of the nose and within the mouth. Garden mint comes into focus on the nose and in the mouth helping promote the clean refreshing character. Warming herb notes add to the richness and complexity of the gin.
The huge Victorian walled garden, 8 ½ acres the largest walled garden in Scotland, at Gordon Castle is in the process of being renovated and redeveloped, with a masterplan by acclaimed garden designer Arne Maynard.
Clean with citrus and juniper noticeable, but nicely balanced.
When neat: Crisp, very light and delicate. Mint and lavender coming through, touch of sweetness on the finish
With tonic (one part gin to two parts Fever Tree): Refreshing and very easy going. Fairly balanced, loses the mint with the fruitiness shining through.
THE IDEAL SERVE
Serve as a classic martini with a sprig of mint or with tonic with lemon, lime and mint garnish.
