Twelve botanicals go in to making Kintyre Gin to achieve the characteristics of this very flavoursome and well-balanced spirit. Ten of these are commonly used in craft gin production and two are unique to us. The two unique ones are sheep sorrel and Icelandic moss, chosen because they grow in abundance on Torrisdale Castle Estate – where our distillery is based. Icelandic moss is actually a lichen and is an indicator of good air quality which we are blessed with here in Kintyre.
Take a closer look at each botanical to see what they contribute to making our delicious gin. Our expert tasting panel described our gin as having earthy and spicy characteristics, being deep in flavour, with a very pleasant floral aroma. A true taste of Kintyre!
