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.

Smartass Corner:
Aronia berry is one of four varieties of the chokeberry. They are dark in color and rich in polyphenols.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The Spirit is lovely on the nose with balanced notes of juniper, florals, spice, and a light bitter-orange note like Cointreau in the background.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile is equally well-balanced with fruit at first followed by savory pine resin and some heat.

Finish
The finish is savory and clean with a lingering note of flamed orange zest.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Scottish Kings Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Gin was so cheap and popular in London in the first half of the 18th century, an epidemic of drunkenness engulfed the city. There were 7,000 Gin shops by 1730 and wasted Londoners fell victim to acts of violence and widespread addiction. The government had to step in with an emergency legislation to stop the so-called "Gin Craze".
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.
Is Gin gluten free? Sort of. While Gin is made from a grain Spirit, which could include wheat, barley or even rye, some experts say that it’s still suitable for those on gluten-free diets due to being distilled. The distillation process removes enough of the gluten protein in the drink to make it gluten-free. But proceed with caution.
