Red Door Highland Gin has unveiled a new Winter Botanicals expression – the first in a series of limited edition seasonal flavours.
Handcrafted at the Benromach Distillery in Forres, the 45% ABV gin is produced in a small copper pot still, combining botanicals such as allspice, sea buckthorn, blood orange, sultanas and hop blossom.
The botanicals have been “harmonised” to create flavours and aromas of winter, from warm citrus notes to the richness of Christmas cake.
Red Door Highland Gin with Winter Botanicals is recommended served with premium tonic water and a slice of orange or used to create a Winter Punch with the addition of ginger syrup, red vermouth, an orange wedge and lemonade.
Lizzie Haw, Red Door Highland Gin’s flavour expert, said: “We’re thrilled to be adding to our product portfolio with the release of this limited-edition seasonal flavour. It’s the perfect addition to the winter drinks cabinet and ideal for festive entertaining or Christmas gifting.
“As a small, handcrafted gin distillery, we have the advantage of being nimble and responsive to new or seasonal flavour trends.
“This seasonal edition with winter botanicals is the first of our special releases, carefully created to showcase how festive flavours like allspice and sultanas combine with the classic notes from our core gin, such as sea buckthorn.”
Only 6,000 bottles of Red Door Highland Gin with Winter Botanicals will be released for sale.
