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

Adam von Gootkin founded Highclere Gin in 2017. 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. He had partnered with the the 8th Earl and Countess of Carnarvon to bring this inspiration to life.

Highclere Castle Gin is a classic London Dry Gin distilled at England’s Oldest Gin Distillery — and while the distillery is not named, we know that the Plymouth Gin Distillery has been in operation since 1793, so that’s our guess.

They follow what they call “garden to glass” ingredients, 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. But they also infuse oats from the family farm which is fairly unique and is said to soften the finish. And it’s bottled at a very respectable 43.5% ABV. Finally, we would be remiss if we did not call attention lovely, square, blue-glass bottle with an image of the castle placed high and proud.

Smartass corner:
The Plymouth Gin Distillery is also known as “The Black Friars Distillery” because the main building used to be a part of monastery. The term “black friars” comes from Dominican monks who were identified by the black “cappa” (cape) they wore.

Ratings & Reviews
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.
Great taste, very aromatic
