Open The Red Door…

Our idea was simple; to capture the spirit of Scotland’s majestic mountains, forests and coastal fringes in a deliciously distinctive, small-batch Highland gin.

Handcrafted in our copper pot still, Peggy, Red Door Gin is a London Dry Gin vapour-infused with a heart of finest juniper and unique selection of locally-inspired botanicals.

Beautifully balanced with a sumptuously smooth mouthfeel, Red Door Gin can be sipped and savoured neat, or enjoyed as the base to a sensational gin and tonic.

Red Door Gin with Winter Botanicals

Discover our botanicals…

Carefully selected for a full-bodied flavour, Red Door Gin balances five core gin botanicals with the deliciously distinctive flavours of three botanicals inspired by the local landscape.

Locally-inspired botanicals

Our unique selection of three locally-inspired botanicals includes, pearls of heather, common on Scottish hillsides, rowan berries, found in local wooded areas, and sea buckthorn, growing wild in Scotland’s coastal areas.

Classic gin botanicals

Our five, classic gin botanicals (juniper berries, lemon peel, bitter orange peel, coriander seed and angelica root) create the base to a London Dry Gin with a complex palate and a lusciously long finish.

Sea Buckthorn

Locally Inspired Botanical

These tart, tangy berries have crisp, warming citrus flavours. Sea buckthorn’s aromatic flavour adds fresh, fruity top notes to Red Door Gin.

Sometimes known as ‘sea berries’, sea buckthorn can be found growing wild in Scotland’s coastal fringes.

Pearls of Heather

Locally Inspired Botanical

Heather’s flavour is subtly perfumed; it imparts deliciously delicate grassy, floral notes to Red Door Gin.

Heather is iconic across the Scottish landscape. When in bloom, heather populates the Scottish hillsides with a haze of bright purple flowers. Pearls of heather provides a uniquely Scottish twist on the traditional floral undertones from common gin botanicals such as rose petals and chamomile.

Rowan Berries

Locally Inspired Botanical

Rowan berry’s rich flavour is slightly bitter with subtle chocolatey, smoky overtones. It is one of the key elements to building Red Door’s bittersweet, full bodied flavour profile.

Rowan berries can be found in abundance in our local glens and forests.

Juniper Berries

Classic Gin Botanical

Built on a solid foundation of finest juniper berries, our signature note is punchy, piney with a fruity freshness.

Juniper is the base to all gin; the word ‘gin’ derives from the Latin juniperus, meaning juniper. Red Door Gin is classified as a London Dry Gin, meaning its signature note on both the nose and the palate must be juniper.

Juniper Berries

Bitter Orange Peel

Classic Gin Botanical

Tarter and tangier than your average gin, a burst of bitter orange peel gives Red Door Gin a deliciously distinctive citrus taste. Combined with lemon peel, bitter orange provides a delectable depth of comforting citrus flavours.

Bitter Orange Peel

Lemon Peel

Classic Gin Botanical

Crisp and clean, lemon peel brings uplifting citrus notes to the palate. Creating a beautiful zesty balance, lemon peel provides essential contrast to the bittersweet, herbal notes of Red Door Gin.

Lemon Peel

Angelica Root

Classic Gin Botanical

Angelica root has a warm, earthy flavour with slightly bitter, herbaceous notes. It provides essential bite and a lingering aftertaste, giving Red Door Gin that lusciously long finish.

Angelica root is often regarded as the third major botanical in most gins. Its unique flavour acts as a binding agent, creating harmony between the other complex flavours of our botanicals.

Angelica Root

Coriander Seeds

Classic Gin Botanical

Coriander seed is citrusy, nutty and slightly spicy. It delivers zesty notes that are presented towards the end of the palate, adding a delicious depth and complexity to Red Door Gin.

Discover what’s behind the Red Door

We’ve been handcrafting spirits here in the Scottish Highlands for over 120 years, with meticulous attention to detail and quality. Named after our distillery’s distinctive red doors, Red Door Gin marks a new chapter in our distillery’s long and proud history.

Our still, Peggy

Every delicious drop of Red Door Gin is crafted in our handmade copper pot still, Peggy.

Using a special vapour infusion distillation method, Peggy steams the neutral base spirit through our basket of botanicals for a more delicate, delectable gin. The slow nature of the vapour infusion ensures that the individual characteristics of our botanicals are not lost during distillation, resulting in a beautifully balanced gin.

Affectionately named after Peggy Urquhart, wife of George Urquhart from the second generation of the family owners of Gordon and MacPhail, Peggy is our pride and joy here at Red Door Gin.

Peggy’s capacity is 500 litres & each distillation run produces the equivalent of 762 bottles of Red Door Gin.

2

Each batch of Red Door takes 5 ½ hours to perfect and we use just over 6.5kg of our 8 botanicals in every batch.

3

Peggy uses a vapour infusion distillation method- in this method, the botanicals do not come into contact with the liquid spirit at all. Instead they are placed in Peggy’s ‘botanicals basket’, encountering the spirit as vapour.

We distil at 55% ABV (this is the strength of the Grain Neutral Spirit (GNS), which is wheat based.) The spirit comes off at an average of 80% ABV which is then taken down to 45% ABV for bottling.
