Inspired by Celtic tradition, Caorunn Gin is expertly distilled in small batches at the Balmenach Distillery in the Speyside Region of the Scottish Highlands. Gin Master Simon Buley uses a Copper Berry Chamber to infuse the finest pure grain spirit with six traditional and five Celtic botanicals, resulting in a fresh, clean spirit with perfectly balanced aromas and flavors. On the nose, Caorunn offers bright floral and citrus aromas, backed by a hint of spiciness. The palate opens with refreshing notes of citrus fruit, which lead to well integrated notes of juniper, sweet heather, coriander and Rowan berry. Hints of pine and wild herbs linger through the finish.
The traditional botanicals, juniper, coriander seed, orange peel, lemon peel, angelica root and cassia bark, lend essential aromas and flavors to the spirit, but it's the Celtic botanicals that give Caorunn its unique profile. The Rowan berry, long used in Celtic medicinal recipes, lends a subtle berry tartness to the palate, while heather, an integral part of the Highland landscape, imparts subtle perfumed undertones with a nuance of honey. Bog myrtle lends a soft, sweet resinous aroma, balanced by the sweet, refreshing notes of the Coul Blush Apple and the light sharpness of the dandelion leaf.
