Raven Spirits

Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Brothers Callum and Peter Sim were on a camper van holiday in 2017 that saw them visiting a number of Scottish Distilleries on the West Coast including a visit to Bruichladdich Distillery, home to The Botanist. That night they found themselves sitting under the stars talking about what botanicals would make up their ideal Scottish Gin. As young boys the brothers had been fascinated with Norse mythology, especially the mighty Odin and the story of his two ravens, sitting watchfully over his throne. A plan was literally hatched the next morning.

The brothers spent over a year developing their ideal flavour combination, refining and developing the recipe, testing small batches. With the assistance of an old friend at a nearby distillery in Royal Deeside, they distilled their first batch and Hrafn (pronoucned Ra-vn) meaning Raven in Old Norse took flight.

Hrafn Gin Valhalla

Bottled at 49% ABV, Hrafn Gin Valhalla was created as a gin that can be enjoyed neat over ice or in a gin and tonic. A classic gin flavour profile of herbaceous, piney juniper but with the subtle use of mandarin, which creates a complex but well balanced gin that has a creamy mouthfeel. The use of mandarin as a key botanical along with other classic gin botanicals delivers a gin that’s juniper forward before crackling into a lovely, warming spice that transitions into fresh, intense mandarin that lingers on the finish with subtle undertones of warm spice.

Gin Style: London Dry

Goes great with: Neat over ice with a twist of lemon peel or tonic and ice.
