About

Arcturus Torridon Gin draws its name from a first-magnitude star in the constellation of Boötes, which is amongst the brightest stars that can be seen from Earth and is related to the stag and the rising of the star Arcturus. The Torridon is a 5 star hotel and resort set in 58 acres of Scottish parkland at the end of the magnificent sea loch, Upper Loch Torridon. The team noticed there was no specific gin from Torridon despite a rich bounty of wild botanicals growing nearby.

London Dry Gin

London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.

Production

While the key botanicals in Arcturus Torridon Gins are locally foraged from around the beautiful Torridon Hotel location in Wester Ross, the team enlisted the expertise of the team at Dunnet Bay Distillery, makers of Rock Rose Gin, to bring their gin to life. The Torridon Hotel, home to the Arcturus Gin range, created their very own gin garden in 2019, as part of their existing and impressive kitchen garden, which houses and grows many of the botanicals that go into making their gins. Plans are underway to create a distillery within the hotel, moving full production to the Torridon.
