Caorunn, small batch gin, from the Scottish Highlands

Caorunn is distilled at Balmenach Distillery which has been a working malt whiskey distillery since 1824 and is one of the oldest distilleries in the Speyside region of the Scottish Highlands. The heritage and expertise of the Celtic people are used to harness Scotland’s natural resources and age-old botanicals. Using their Unique Copper Berry Chamber, made in the 1920s, gin is produced with a slow process to infuse the subtle flavors of the botanicals surrounding the hills of the Balmenach Distillery – Rowan Berry (Caorunn is the Gaelic word for Rowan Berry), Bog Myrtle, Heather, Coul Blush Apple, Dandelion Leaf, Juniper Berries, Coriander Seed, Orange Peel, Lemon Peel, Angelic Root, and Cassia Bark.

This has to be one of the best gins I have ever had. It’s dry and crisp with an aromatic finish. The floral and citrus aroma permeates the air when you open the bottle. I knew at the moment it would make the perfect Gin and Tonic!
