All the botanicals that go into making Inshriach Gin are found growing wild on the estate and surrounding areas, all within a few miles of the distillery. Inshriach Gin is made with locally foraged Scottish juniper berries, juniper shoots and rosehip along with a number of other botanicals providing a sweet, floral, piney flavour.
Upfront it’s resinous but fresh like a winter’s forest walk, opens into grapefruit and peach, then dry with potpourri and a backbone of aniseed
Warming peppery juniper, with an olive oil feel on the tongue, spiced and tangy but not hot, superbly creamy all the way through into the finish
A gentle prickle of juniper re-emerging at the back to bring it all together once the vanilla creaminess fades
Scottish Juniper, Rosehip, Douglas Fir
Goes great with:
A sprig of mint, slice of lime, tonic and ice

Inshriach Estate consists of 200 acres of natural woodland and pasture bordered on the north by the river Spey and to the south by the foothills of the Cairngorms and just a few miles away from the famous Lairig Ghru long distance walk. It’s here you’ll find Inshriach House, an Edwardian country house and the estate’s distillery, Inshriach Distillery. The estate also features a number of unique and fun places to stay including bothies and huts. The Inshriach Distillery came to fame in 2015 by winning Channel 4’s Shed of the Year, although the distillery is far from what you expect when you picture a typical garden shed.
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.
The Inshriach Distillery is unlike any other distillery in the UK. On first glance, it appears to be an American Western Saloon that might not have looked out of place in the mid 18th century, frequented by cowboys, trappers and those seeking their fame and fortune from gold prospecting. On closer inspection, you’ll discover the sparkle of copper and the scent of juniper in the air. Inside you’ll discover a traditional copper pot still situated in the gin lab, a bar, a shop and a vast array of artefacts ranging from the curious to the hilarious. The distillery sits on the Inshriach estate, which is a hive of activity throughout the year hosting festivals, camping and bothy experiences and Inshriach House itself.
