In the Glass
Brilliant, crystal clear.
The aromatics are wonderfully fresh presented on a backdrop of an ultra clean and expansive spirit offering scents of red and black berries with mint, anise, and hints of evergreen brush.
The palate echoes the nose delivering a silky, grain spirit core with waves of herbs, pine, heather, and soft (almost sweet) mineral notes.
Intensity & Texture
Medium to full-bodied with a beautifully lush core and ideal balance thanks to a vibrant dose of acidity and clever botanical blend.
I've long been a fan of Caorunn Gin as I love the flavor profile and the fact that it brings something unique to the Gin category.
It's not the cheapest Gin on the shelf but it's among the best and it is unique in most every way. We are happy to pay the asking price.
I'm a longtime fan of Caorunn (pronounced – ka-roon) and I love seeing it on the backbar as I then know that the buyer is tuned in. It features 11 botanicals including five wild-foraged Highland botanicals: rowan berry (or Caorunn in old Scottish Gaelic), bog myrtle, heather, Coul blush apple, and dandelion leaf. The base spirit is not just a vehicle for the botanicals as its silky smooth texture and soft edges make it an ideal sipper. If you are a Gin lover this needs to be in your bar.
How to Enjoy
This beautiful gin can be sipped right out of the bottle but if you give it a little chill it's even better. This is an ideal classic Martini Gin.
