Badachro Gin is produced and bottled in the Badachro Distillery overlooking the beautiful Badachro Bay. The label reflects the purity of the land, mountains and water around Badachro, the clarity of the sky and the copper of the still, Delilah. Using botanicals that grow in the ancient lands within sight of the distillery, water that falls through the pure, unpolluted air above the village and the much documented highland tradition of distilling, Badachro Gin is born from the delight and wonder of the surrounding landscape.
The Badachro Distillery is located in the remote and beautiful hamlet of Badachro, near Gairloch in the Highlands of Scotland. One of the last true wilderness areas in Europe, with pitch dark night skies where the stars are at times almost blindingly bright, an arm of the Milky Way galaxy streaks above in the nights sky and the regularly Aurora Borialis (The Northern Lights) can often be seen dancing overhead. With the sea to the west and north, the Torridon mountains to the east, Loch Torridon to the south, the distillery is surrounded with an abundance of fresh water and natural botanicals. It’s from these magical surroundings that the owners of Badachro Distillery found their inspiration to create a gin named after the place they love and call home.
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.
From its elevated position, the Badachro Distillery provides panoramic views over the village of Badachro and Gairloch. This rural distillery houses a traditional copper pot still named ‘Delilah’ that originated in Portugal. The distillery provides small, intimate tours in summer each year that include an introduction to Badachro with owners Gordon and Vanessa.
