Scotland might be known for whisky but it actually makes the majority of the world’s gin and Scottish Gin brands are some of the finest in the world.
This gift set features the following:
- Full sized bottles of 5 of Gin Festival's favourite Scottish gins.
- 2 of our iconic copa gin glasses
- 2 bottles of Fever Tree Original Tonic
This is the ideal collection for gin lovers who want to experience the depth and breadth of Scottish Gin and appreciate the masterful skills behind their creation.
The 5 gins included are:
Caorunn - 70cl 41.8% ABV Caorunn (pronounced ka-roon) gets its name from the gaelic word for a rowan berry, one of the distinctly Scottish botanicals used in this quintessentially Scottish gin. Rowan berries form the main flavour of Caorunn, alongside the juniper, in what is a clean, crisp and aromatic gin. Other very Scottish aromas include heather, bog myrtle and coul blush apple. A modern classic.
Shetland Reel - 70cl 43% ABV Shetland Reel Gin is a rather traditional spirit that has taken the best from classic gins but added a modern, Scottish twist. There is a lightness on the nose with juniper, coriander and gentle citrus peel that lead onto a crisp and flavoursome palate. It has light spice and citrus zest. Juniper works closely with mint and is backed by a subtle fruitiness. With a rich mouthfeel, Shetland Reel Gin finishes on an aromatic, herbal note.
Edinburgh Gin- 70cl 43% ABV Edinburgh Gin Distillery are master alchemists. As well as their stunning original London Dry they make some gin liqueurs that are astoundingly tasty creations plus some inspired gin variants for Christmas or the Seaside. They even work closely with Edinburgh University in the country's only practical distilling University course. All that innovation feeds into what is undoubtedly a sterling spirit. Edinburgh Gin leads with the tastes of mountains and heather before settling into a well balanced and crisp gin with a charmingly gingery spiciness and citrus notes.
Daffy's Gin - 70cl 43% ABV The lady on the bottle is Daffy's self-styled 'Goddess of Gin' and this spirit certainly tastes divine. A strong bodied gin, fresh and woody on the nose, Daffy’s brings forth a hint of toffee as well as a rather gentle floral fragrance. Spicy, leading to lively citrus and a healthy dash of juniper, married to a wonderful range of red, summer fruits and some light mint. This is a smooth and vibrant gin that will maybe appeal more to those with a sweet tooth.
Rock Rose - 70cl 41% ABV Many Scottish distilleries take their inspiration from the landscape they're made in, using botanicals available on the distillery's doorstep and that are uniquely Scottish. Nobody does this more than Rock Rose though. Many of the botanicals used in their original gin are harvested on their island home of Caithness and will be subject to the whims of weather and climate. That means that, like a vintage wine, each bottling of Rock Rose will be subtly different. Though every bottle should be fabulously zesty, dry, floral, fruity and incredibly varied on the nose. Aromatic, yet with strong juniper coming through.
