Kinrara Distillers Edition Rose & Cardamom Gin uses a number of locally sourced botanicals including rosehip and rowan berries, which have been foraged from the Kinrara Estate in the heart of the Cairngorms. This juniper led dry gin is infused with hibiscus flowers and sweet orange peel to give a luxurious deep pink hue and added floral flavour.
Kinrara’s Highland Distillery is nestled in 12,000 acres of Cairngorm National Park, just outside Aviemore. The centuries old estate was founded by Lady Jane Gordon, beautiful socialite and co-creator of the famous Gordon Highlanders. It was in her drawing room that Rabbie Burns first read his poetry to Edinburgh society. One of Scotland’s newest micro-distilleries, Kinrara Distillery make unique Highland Dry Gin infused with local flora and berries. The team at Kinrara Distillery prides itself on creating a handcrafted small batch spirit using their direct-fired stills that were handmade for the distillery in Portugal. From the distillation right down to the bottling, everything is lovingly done by hand, by their passionate Highland team.
Flavoured Gins vary in flavour and colour. Often the gin will be infused with a flavour post-distillation through maceration or even the addition and blending of individual distillates or essences. Sometimes the gin will be created in one distillation. These styles of gin often have a key flavour which tends to lead the flavour profile, such as fresh berry fruit, citrus or any number of possible key botanicals and flavours. Although this gin style should still include juniper, it is often not the leading botanical.
Set in the vast and rugged setting of the wild Scottish Cairngorms National Park, a whitewashed converted steading is home to the Kinrara Distillery. Featuring traditional copper pot stills, bottling and packing facilitates, all production takes place on-site at the distillery. With a tasting room available for tasting events adorned with some of the artwork featured on the artists edition gins, the distillery is a true highland home. The distillery is part of the Kinrara Estate, which means the team have access to a variety of local botanicals that grow wild on the estate plus an abundance of fresh water direct from the estate.
