A lovely, exceptionally well-balanced Gin made in the Highlands in the London Dry style.
Randy Miller was a career journalist from Denver. When he felt the call of the Highlands along with a desire to create a Highland-made Gin, his wife Linda was nothing but supportive. They spent three years located in a small farm distillery and crafting the perfect flavor profile. Then last year they launched Scottish Kings Gin. Right out of the gate it’s taken home two Double Gold Medals in San Fransisco, a Gold Medals at The Beverage Tasting Institute and The Gin Is IN.
Scottish Kings Gin is simple — small batch distilled grain Gin rooted in a classic London Dry style. It is crafted from what Randy calls "The Magic Eleven" botanicals — juniper, coriander, lime zest, angelica root, rose petals, basil, orange zest, licorice root, elderflower, cardamom, and aronia berry. The combination is exceptionally well-balanced, making it a wonderful cocktail base. And we have to say, the use of that famous Scottish water comes through as well with a light mineral essence that we’ve never found anyplace else than the Highlands.
Aronia berry is one of four varieties of the chokeberry. They are dark in color and rich in polyphenols.
