Two Mhor gins released

THE family behind Perthshire hospitality business Monachyle Mhor has launched two new gins.

Mhor Festival founder, Tom Lewis.

Unveiled at the Mhor Festival, which took place at Monachyle Mhor near Balquhidder last month, the new spirits, Dr Osbourne’s No. 46 and No. 99, are made in conjunction with The Old Curiosity Distillery and include botanicals grown and distilled at the Secret Herb Garden in Edinburgh.

The festival, which is now in its seventh year, offered guests a mix of food, live performances, celebrity chefs and outdoor activities.

New to this year’s event was the Glengoyne Supper Club; exclusive to Mhor Festival, and taking place in its newest venue – the Fire Hut – festival-goers were invited to join whisky producers for a seven-course supper, which was cooked over an open fire and paired with various drams.

Music at the festival ranged from Spanish DJ, Jon Sa Trinxa, who made his Scottish debut, alongside Andy Carroll and live music from Ray Harris, to up-and-coming Inverness-based Dylan Tierney and Glasgow’s 100 Fables.

Mhor Festival founder, Tom Lewis, said “there is nothing like Mhor Festival – there are lots of great festivals around but we have created something unique”.
