Caorunn

Grantown-on-Spey, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Nestled deep in the stunning landscapes of the Scottish Highlands, you’ll discover the home of Caorunn and the Balmenach Distillery. The distillery was established in 1824 by James MacGregor, originally from a family of farmers and illicit distillers who resided in Tomintoul.

Situated on the banks of the River Spey, the distillery stands beneath the nearby hill of Tom Lethendry, where the Jacobites were defeated in the Battle of Cromdale in 1690.

In 1897 the distillery was purchased by Glenlivet and was served by its own railway branch off the Strathspey Railway until 1969. The distillery closed in 1941 and re-opened in 1947, following expansion of its facilities.

Crafted exclusively for travel retail, Gin Master Simon Buley created this expression using a balance of traditional and foraged botanicals to create an exceptionally fresh, clean flavour bursting with vibrant juniper and the soft fruity notes of rowan and apple, perfectly encapsulating and enhancing the vert essence of Caorunn. Bottled at 48%, Caorunn Master’s Cut boasts the highest ABV of any gin in British airports.
