I love gin. There its been said.I particularly like trying more local gins and the description for this was given as "infused to perfection in our unique copper berry chamber using six traditional and five celtic botanicals. My favourite gins at the moment are heather rose and one called strathearn homecoming gin both of which have similar ingredients to this.
**About the company**
This is a scottish company which make and sell small batch scottish gin.
Smell- this doesnt have that much of a smell. A slightly fresh and floral smell with citrus.
Taste (neat) - A very clean and crisp sweet taste.
Finish- i think this has a long lasting finish. It tastes crisp and slightly drying
**How do I drink it**
On the companys website they actually have a feature where you can choose ingredients from a list and it comes up with recipe suggestions. I actually like this the way it is just poured over ice but this also goes great in cocktails. If you order this gin in a bar it traditionally comes with a thin wedge of red apple which enhances the dry and crisp taste.
**In those winter months**
This recipe has came mainly came from the website with a few changes of my own
A warming drink with a tart lemon flavour softened with Heather honey. A winter warmer.
25ml Caorunn Gin
15ml Heather honey
15ml Lemon juice
Serve hot in a 12oz cup/glass
Add 1 bag of Camomile & Spiced Apple tea (Twinings) to hot water. Steep for 1 min and remove. Add ingredients to the water and stir thoroughly before serving.- Instead of the camomile tea i either add apple crunch tea (also by twinnings) or if i feel extra energetic I put a bag of apples through the juicer, warm it up in a pot and add a bit of cinnamon - same idea really but without the camomile.
**Price and where to get**
This costs around £30 and can be bought direct from the caorunns website (if you live in the UK)
A nice dry and crisp gin with a long finish. Great for cocktails or by itself.
70cl / 41.8% - A really tremendous new gin made, unusually, by a whisky producer - Caorunn (pronounced 'ka-roon') hails from Balmenach distillery in Speyside and is flavoured with Scottish botanicals including rowan berry, heather, dandelion and coul blush apple. / Caorunn Gin
