Taking its name from the rock so closely associated with the North East of Scotland, Granite North Gin is inspired by the rugged peaks and ancient forests of the Scottish Highlands.
As a keen hillwalker, the founder Sandy Matheson, has always been inspired by the dramatic landscape of the Cairngorms and the idea to create his own gin came to him while climbing Braeriach in the heart of the Cairngorms. Qualified as an engineer, and a self-confessed perfectionist, he has combined his love of gin and passion for the outdoors in a bold venture to create a new gin from the North East of Scotland.
Handcrafted in small batches in the Highlands of Scotland, the award winning Granite North Gin is distilled using water from its Cairngorm Mountain range home.
Granite North is a smooth Scottish Gin packed with flavour. A juniper-forward gin, its fresh, citrus taste is smooth enough to drink on its own or with a light tonic to release even more of its zesty flavour and is robust enough to stand up and stand out in cocktails. Its outdoor personality is revealed in the subtle infusion of Grand Fir needles that complement the native taste of its juniper cousin, helping to summon the fresh aromas of the pure mountain air.
