What makes Red Door Gin’s botanicals special?
After much trialling and testing, our Master Distiller carefully selected a combination of eight locally-influenced botanicals both complex and beautifully balanced.
Red Door Gin has a heart of finest juniper and defining citrus bite of bitter orange, with aromatic sea buckthorn, grassy, floral pearls of heather and chocolatey, smoky rowan berries.
Our idea was simple. To capture the spirit of Scotland’s majestic mountains, forests and windswept coastline in a deliciously distinctive, small-batch Highland Gin.
“As a gin from the Scottish Highlands, we were keen to take influence from botanicals associated with the Scottish landscape – heather, which is common on Scottish hillsides, rowan berries, which can be found in local wooded areas, and sea buckthorn, which can be found growing wild in Scotland’s coastal areas.”
– Andy Hannah, Brand Manager.
For us, the key to a great flavour is all about how our selection of botanicals interact together. Our Master Distiller has incorporated a depth of citrus notes and earthy angelica root to help marry together Red Door’s flavours.
We use a special vapour infusion distillation method to steam the neutral base spirit through our basket of chosen botanicals. The slow nature of the vapour infusion ensures that the delicate flavours of our botanicals are not lost during distillation. You can taste the most subtle notes and nuances of each of Red Door’s individual botanicals in just a single sip.
Together, our selection of the finest botanicals creates a deliciously distinctive London Dry Gin. Red Door has a palate that works beautifully in a G&T or silky-smooth Martini.
