This second release gin from Tobermory Distillery is inspired by the vibrant purple heather covered mountains on the Isle of Mull. Other key botanicals include rosehip, rowan berry, tea and ginger. As with their signature gin, a splash of spirit from the Tobermory whisky stills is added to create a distinctive character, unique to the Tobermory range of gins.
Situated on the Hebridean island of Mull in the coastal fishing town of Tobermory, the Tobermory Distillery was established in 1798. The seafront and harbour is famous for its rainbow coloured row of houses and shops that overlook the Sound of Mull, the expanse of water between the east side of the island and mainland Scotland. The distillery over the centuries has opened and closed due to the changes in demand for whisky and was brought under new ownership in 2013. The distillery still retains many of its original features and continues to produce a variety of single malt whiskies. Although a whisky distillery at its heart, in April 2019, the distillery launched its first Scottish Gin, Tobermory Hebridean 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.
The Tobermory Distillery on the Hebridean island of Mull released its first Scottish Gin expression in April 2019, although the history of the distillery stretches back to 1798 when it was originally established as the Ledaig Distillery. Over the centuries, the distillery has changed ownership and names but the focus has remained true - produce Scottish spirits that capture the essence of Mull and the Hebridean spirit.
