Caorunn gin would make a truly personal Mother’s Day gift; it is passionately handcrafted in small batches in a unique Copper Berry chamber by Gin Master, Simon Buley, with his enviable distilling and spirit expertise. The speciality is created by infusing five locally-foraged botanicals including dandelion, heather, Coul blush apple, bog myrtle and rowan berry along with six traditional gin botanicals and natural Scottish water. Fresh and floral on the nose, this gin is clean, sweet, full-bodied and aromatic with a long-lasting dry and crisp finish.
The round Copper Berry chamber contains four large trays on which the botanicals are spread. As the vapour passes through the trays it picks up the flavours of all the botanicals in a long, slow process. When it cools and returns to liquid, now gin, the botanicals are firmly embedded in the spirit.
