Great Glen Pink Gin balances ten carefully chosen botanicals. Classic pine notes of juniper and citrussy coriander seeds are elevated by distilled Scottish raspberries, vapour infused rose and hibiscus petals and sweet Pink Lady apples, resulting in a light, floral pink gin with fresh, lasting flavours.

About

The Great Glen Distillery was established by Daniel Campbell in his late mother’s shop in the small Highland village of Drumnadrochit in Glen Urquhart, located on the western shore of the world famous Loch Ness. It was through the Campbell family business that Daniel met Adam Dwyer, who had worked at a number of Michelin star restaurants, refining his skills and palate in the kitchen before joining the Campbell family business, eventually becoming executive head chef across the business group. Together Daniel and Adam began tinkering with the idea of establishing a distillery that would draw its inspiration from the local area and set to work developing a recipe that used some local botanicals and water sourced from Loch Ness.

Distilled Gin

Distilled Gins are similar to London Dry Gins, except natural or artificial flavourings can be added after the distillation process. The flavours can vary greatly and some gins can often cross over to other gin styles, for example where sugars have been added to created an Old Tom style gin or maceration with fruit to create a Flavoured Gin. Some Distilled Gins also follow the London Dry style to the letter but go on to include additional botanical/s to their gin post-distillation and therefore can’t be classed as a London Dry Gin. Distilled Gin is sometimes referred to as Contemporary, New American, New Western or International style gin.

Production

Forming part of the Great Glen Distillery & Visitor Centre, the distillery is discreetly tucked round the side of the Loch Ness Drumnadrochit Hotel. Located in the former shop, the distillery houses a 200 litre still named Jacqueline after the founder’s late mother. The still is used to produce both the gin and the base spirit that’s used during the distillation process. One of Scotland’s smallest distilleries, the micro distillery draws its water source from a borehole that draws its water directly from Loch Ness.
