Scotland’s Caorunn Gin is marking its 10-year anniversary by adding a raspberry-flavoured expression to its range.
Crafted at Balmenach Distillery in the Scottish Highlands, Caorunn Scottish Raspberry is produced in small batches of 1,00 litres at a time.
Utilising Scotland’s unique natural resources, Caorunn is infused in what is believed to be the world’s only working Copper Berry Chamber.
The spirit’s “distinctive aromatic flavour”, created by infusing five locally foraged Celtic botanicals and six traditional gin botanicals in this Copper Berry Chamber, is “perfectly complemented by the addition of sumptuous Perthshire raspberries”.
Bottled at 41.8% ABV, Caorunn Scottish Raspberry combines the dry, crisp taste of Caorunn enhanced by a natural raspberry sweetness.
The new gin is best served with Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water, built over ice and garnished with fresh raspberries and red apple slices, or in a Raspberry Collins, mixed with lemon juice, Chambord, sugar syrup and soda.
Gin master Simon Buley said: “We’re incredibly proud to be introducing our very first flavoured gin just ahead of our 10-year anniversary of Caorunn gin, here at Balmenach Distillery.
“Caorunn Scottish Raspberry leverages the same trusted process that has made Caorunn gin such a success over the last decade.
“This process, paired with the unique infusion of Perthshire raspberries has allowed us to create a bright, clean and fruity gin that we’re incredibly proud to be adding to our range.”
