September Gin Discovery Boxes: Tasting Notes

A taste of the trio of gins which can be found in our September Discovery Box

 

Kinrara Highland Dry Gin

 

Nestled amidst 12,000 acres of Cairngorm National Park, lies the hidden gem that is Kinrara Distillery. All the gins produced at Kinrara are developed on a copper pot still named ‘Wee Alice’ and are derived from foraged and locally sourced ingredients.

Foraged rosehips and rowan berries, collected from the forests and grounds of the distillery throughout the year, are combined with water filtered through the Cairngorm mountains to distil this wonderfully Scottish gin.

 

Tasting notes

Fruity and floral on the nose, leading into a smoothness followed by a long, subtle, orange and juniper finish.

Known botanicals

Juniper, rosehips, rowan berries and highland flora.

Perfect serve

Over ice with quality tonic and a sliver of orange peel.

Flavourly Blueberry Gin

The second instalment in the Flavourly Gin Project series was proudly produced in collaboration with the fine folk at the Leith Stillroom in our native Edinburgh.

A hand-picked blend of 11 botanicals, including a generous helping of blueberries and juniper berries, give this spirit its signature blueberry flavour without losing that classic gin character. A perfect accompaniment to tonic or as a base to a wide variety of cocktails.

 

Tasting notes

Blueberries, citrus and subtle spice for balance.

Known botanicals

Juniper berries, blueberries, coriander seeds, angelica root, lemon peel, orange peel, cassia bark, liqourice, ground nutmeg, cinnamon bark, orris root.

Square Peg Pink Gin

In January 2018, five guys (Andrew, Brian, Ricky, Sam and Simon) from different backgrounds, and with over 50 years of experience got around a table, and after some very interesting discussions, The Square Peg Spirits Co. was born.

Their goal was to shake up the pink gin market by creating a new, innovative product so they created Square Peg Pink Gin, which is made using only natural ingredients and fresh fruity berries, sourced from Perthshire farms.

Tasting notes

Dark berry Sweetness combines with juniper and earthy spice.

Known botanicals

Juniper, Coriander, Cardamom, Lemon, Cassia Bark, Liquorice, Orange, Orris Root, Angelica.

Perfect serve

Add some tonic, fresh raspberries and a squeeze of lime for a real summer explosion.
