In collaboration with The Cairngorm Reindeer Herd, this gin release commemorates the 70th Anniversary of the Cairngorm Reindeer Herd, Britain’s only free ranging herd of reindeer. Reindeer are a very special and permanent feature in the Scottish Highlands, having lived and grazed in the Cairngorm Mountains since 1952. Fittingly, the gin features Lichen, otherwise known as reindeer moss, which provides warming spice notes. £2 from the sale of each bottle goes towards the maintenance of the herd. This Special Edition combines the finest juniper, Caledonian pine, cloudberry, orris root, coriander seed, sweet orange peel, angelica root, reindeer moss, heather flower, rose hips, star anise, cloves and cassia bark to create this gently warming gin.

About

Owner and distiller Jack Smith was born and raised in the valley of the River Spey, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, and his family has called the Cairngorms region of the Highlands home for decades. Jack and his family share a love of the great outdoors along with the native flora and fauna that surrounds their home. Jack is a chef to trade and he's trained in some of the best restaurants in the world. Being creative with the very best ingredients, together with his passion for the outdoors, inspired Jack to establish a Scottish Gin distillery, business and brand around his love of the local area.

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

Established in 2019 by Jack Smith, Cairngorm Gin Company is nestled in a valley beneath the wild and breathtaking Cairngorms National Park in the Highlands of Scotland. One of the smallest distilleries in Scotland, Cairngorm Gin Company Distillery can be found on the same plot as distiller Jack Smith’s family home in the highland town of Carrbridge. All distillation, bottling and labelling is undertaken by Jack and his family at the distillery, which is home to ‘Ginger’, a bespoke 50 litre copper pot still named after Jack’s late Grandfather.
