Caorunn Gin

Caorunn is a small batch, quadruple-distilled Scottish Gin personally crafted by one man – our Gin Master, Simon Buley. Using only the finest pure grain spirit, natural Scottish Water and 11 botanical gin ingredients, he personally crafts each and every bottle of Caorunn. Carefully handcrafted in the Scottish Highlands, Caorunn expertly infuses five locally foraged gin botanicals. Artisanal and small-batch, beautifully mixing the rugged charm of Speyside with the urban sophistication of modern Scotland.

Tasting Notes

Caorunn is an expert infusion of five locally foraged botanicals and six traditional botanicals. Caorunn is traditionally served with cool fizzing tonic and slices of red apple to highlight its aromatic flavour profile, however our gin is beautifully versatile which means its also perfect for any classic or contemporary cocktail.

Caorunn is a Modern “London Dry” Gin with a dry and crisp, aromatic taste adventure and a long dry finish.

Aroma

Fresh, floral, citrus, slightly spicy and aromatic.

Flavour

Clean, crisp, sweet, full-bodied and aromatic.

Finish

Invigorating, long-lasting, refreshing, crisp and slightly drying.

 

Distillation

Our handcrafted infusion is created personally by our Gin Master, Simon Buley. Each personally crafted bottle of Caorunn gin begins with the highest quality grain spirit and locally foraged Celtic botanicals. In 1,000 litre batches, the spirit is vaporised through the world's only working Copper Berry Chamber.

Built in the 1920's this Chamber is legacy to a time when all gin was produced using this slow, careful process. The uniquely balanced mix of 6 traditional gin botanicals and 5 hand-foraged wild botanicals sourced by our Gin Master from Scottish Highlands, is spread across the four perforated trays of the copper berry chamber. The vapourised spirit slowly rises through the chamber, allowing the vapours to be saturated with sumptuous subtle fresh aromas and flavours.
