Scotch Whisky? No, Scotch Gin!
 
This Gin is produced by Balmenach distillery, which is one of the first distilleries in the Speyside region of Scottish Highlands. It was founded in 1824, and is one of the first distilleries in Scotland to be licensed for the production of Scotch Whisky. The distillery lies in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park, at the foot of the Haughs of Cromdale. Balmenach harnesses age-old Celtic botanicals that grow in the surrounding hills, which form the base Caorunn’s recipe is built upon.
 
Caorunn Gin (Caorunn, pronounced ‘ka-roon’, is the Gaelic word for Rowan Berry that has inspired Celtic medicines and recipes for generations) is made from grain, which is triple distilled, before it is infused with the following botanicals:
- Traditional
Juniper, coriander, lemon peel, orange peel, angelica root, cassia bark.
- Scottish botanicals 
Rowan berry, heather, dandelion and coul blush apple.
 
Signature Cocktail – Caorunn Apple Smash
50ml Caorunn Gin, 200ml Tonic Water, 1/4 Red Apple, 1/4 Green Apple, 2 Cloves
Muddle an apple in the base of a cocktail shaker, then add the rest of the ingredients, except for tonic water and shake with ice. Strain over ice and top off with tonic water.

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
