A lovely London Dry Gin with a floral palate and soft finish.

Winner of 6 prestigious gold awards with a score of 95 points, Highclere Castle Gin was founded in 2017 by Adam von Gootkin and the 8th Earl & Countess of Carnarvon. Adam is the co-founder of Onyx Spirits company — the Connecticut-based maker of Moonshine. But while watching a documentary about Highclere Castle — the iconic stately home used as the backdrop for Downton Abbey — he was inspired to launch a Gin that reflects the spirit of the estate. And in the Langley Distillery — the England’s Oldest Gin Distillery — they brought this inspiration to life.

Highclere Castle Gin is distilled from a blend of 10 botanicals featuring delicate citrus notes from oranges grown on Highclere’s ancient estate. With an award-winning smooth finish, it is the first super-premium Gin that can be enjoyed straight on the rocks or used to elevate any cocktail.

The philosophy behind Highclere Castle Gin's taste profile is referred to as, "garden to glass", reflecting the spirit of the Highclere estate. The infusions are largely what you would expect in a London Dry — juniper (of course), lavender, orange zest, lime flower, cardamom, cassia, angelica, and coriander are there. Highclere’s famously grown oats were infused in the blend, which is fairly unique and softens the finish. It’s bottled at a very respectable 43.5% ABV. Finally, we would be remiss if we did not call attention to the lovely, square, purple-glass bottle with an image of the castle placed high and proud.

Elevate the moment and celebrate with the spirit of Highclere Castle.


Smartass Corner:
Highclere Castle is famous around the world as "the real Downton Abbey". Highclere Castle's extravagant parties have been held in style since the 1800’s, hosting many of the world’s most interesting people over Gin cocktails.

Corner
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.

Scott
Scott,
Very juniper-forward. Classic; high quality gin.
 
Vicki
Vicki,
I haven't tried it yet. At this point the only thing I can review is the customer service which is very good. I'll get around to it and let you know.
 
William
William,
Have to disagree with most reviews on this gin. Overwhelmingly juniper forward. We sipped it neat, maybe should have added ice or tonic, but none in our group liked this gin.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
A very good gin. It's basically a London style with a botanical finish. Excellent with a little tonic or in a cocktail. My one knock is its a little overpriced. You can get Martin Miller's or St. George for less and they are every bit as good in my opinion. But I'm a huge Downton fan...so I'll probably buy it again.

This is a fabulous gin. Lovely flavor with botanicals from the Highclere estate. It is delicious on the rocks by itself, with tonic, and in mixed drinks.

The most perfect gin in the world! Super smooth and full of citrus notes. Delight finish. I enjoy Highclere Castle Gin simply over ice. So refreshing and proud to share this secret with my friends.

Michael,
I am a gin drinker who has tried many and been disappointed by more than one. Bought this because of the Highclere Castle connection and had low expectations. Wow, was I surprised!! One of my favorites now. Great in Martini's or on the rocks and you have to try a Highclere Gin and Tonic. Superb!

Tyler,
Unbelievable smooth with a very nice finish. We've gone through a lot of gin and this quickly became favorite so much so we asked local stores to carry it.

PETER,
I am a Gin Snob....Have worshipped at the Hendrick's altar for years , ventured into other distilleries from time to time , and only recently discovered Highclere. It is now my all-time favorite ! Love the subtle botanicals , floral finish , smoothness and quality. And no-one can miss the cool bottle ! Have to admit to a certain bias....we have enjoyed a private tour of Highclere Castle , led by none other than the Countess of Carnarvon herself !!! And one highlight was strolling the superb gardens , planted throughout with botanicals galore . Indeed , we may have brushed against the very bushes.... Love it. Peter

Smooth with a lovely floral finish . Subtle botanical s . Goes very well with tonic. I wouldn't disturb the balance by adding a wedge of lime.

Excellent botanical notes on the front end an in the nose. Strong alcohol middle but a pleasant lingering finish. Passable for sipping; should make excellent cocktails.
