Doors open to new spirit

Red Door Gin

MALT whisky specialist Gordon & MacPhail has opened the doors of its Benromach Distillery to gin production with the launch of Red Door.

The London Dry-style gin, which is distilled at the Benromach Distillery in Forres and was released earlier this month, is said to be inspired by Scotland’s mountains, forests and coastal fringes. It takes its name from the distinctive red doors at the distillery.

Bottled at 45% ABV, Red Door is described as containing notes of juniper and bitter orange, as well as sea buckthorn, heather and rowanberries.

David King, sales director at Red Door gin, said: “We’ve been working hard behind the red door to create a gin with a distinctive palate, using the finest botanicals.

“We’re excited for people to try Red Door gin as we embark on this new chapter for Benromach Distillery.”

A new gin visitor experience has also been launched at the distillery.
