Ceann Loch Citrus Gin was created to celebrate the opening of Hall's of Campbeltown, a small independent bottle shop owned and operated by the team at Beinn an Tuirc. Described as a zesty balanced Scottish Gin with bursts of citrus from the use of pink grapefruit, lemon and coriander in the distillation.
‘Beinn an Tuirc’ translates from gaelic as ‘The Hill of the Wild Boar’ and is the highest point in Kintyre, located above the distillery. The range of Kintyre Gins are sustainably produced using the distillery's own renewable energy, powered from the small hydro-electric scheme at Torrisdale Castle Estate. The water too, is sourced from the very hill where they take their name. Kintyre Gin was created to reflect the distillery's unique coastal, pasture and woodland position on the east coast of the Kintyre peninsula.
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.
Beinn an Tuirc Distillery occupies a former piggery building located on the Torrisdale Castle Estate in Kintyre, Scotland. Torrisdale Castle Estate has been in the ownership of the Macalister Hall family since 1872 and over the years has benefited from innovative diversification and in 2020 they generated more energy than they used, with an ongoing focus to reduce their carbon footprint. The Beinn an Tuirc Distillery features a distillery, tasting room, shop and gin school with big plans to introduce a cafe, walled garden, whisky stills and more in 2021. Their still, ‘Big Don’, produces a variety of gin expressions and other spirits and liqueurs.
