Benromach Distillery Launches Red Door Gin

2nd July 2018
Introducing Red Door gin, a London Dry style gin which takes its name from the distinctive red doors at the Benromach Distillery where it is produced.

Red Door Gin from the Benromach distillery.The folks at the Benromach distillery in Forres, Speyside certainly don't hang around when they set their mind to something. It was only March this year that they announced their intention to enter the gin business and revealed their plan to produce Red Door Gin following the installation of a new gin still at their Benromach distillery site.

Well they tell me that they have now launched "Red Door Gin", a small-batch, handcrafted London Dry style gin which takes its name from the distinctive red doors at Benromach Distillery.

They say Red Door gin has been inspired by Scotland’s mountains, forests and coastal fringes, and has been lovingly created by a dedicated team of distillers using the finest botanicals to create an elegantly distinctive gin.

Described as having signature notes of juniper and a defining citrus note of bitter orange, with aromatic sea buckthorn, floral pearls of heather and chocolatey rowanberries. Handmade in a copper pot still, affectionately named, ‘Peggy’, the vapour-infused distilling method steams the neutral base spirit through eight botanicals and is then bottled at 45% ABV.

Launched by family owned Benromach Distillery, producers of the eponymous award winning single malt whisky, Red Door Gin marks a new chapter in the distillery’s proud history.

Gin lovers will also have the opportunity to peek behind the red door with the creation of a visitor experience, telling the story of Red Door Gin and the personalities who craft it, at the Benromach Distillery in Forres, Scotland. Visitors will hear the story of Red Door Gin’s handmade copper still, ‘Peggy’, how the distillers create each batch of Red Door Gin and finally the secrets of creating "perfect serves".

As one of the most popular visitor attractions in Forres, Benromach Distillery already attracts more than 13,000 visitors annually and it is hoped that the new gin visitor experience will draw an additional 10,000 visitors per year.

Both Red Door Gin and Benromach single malt whisky is available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
