Speyside distillery opens Red Door

Gordon & MacPhail unveils gin experience at Benromach

Red Door Gin Experience
The Red Door Gin Experience, at Benromach Distillery in Forres, takes gin fans on a one-hour tour to learn the story of the spirit.

SPEYSIDE’S first single-site gin and whisky visitor attraction recently opened its doors.

The Red Door Gin Experience at Benromach Distillery in Forres invites gin fans to step through the distillery’s red door for a one-hour tour to learn the story behind the Highland gin, which was launched by Gordon & MacPhail last summer.

The tour aims to bring the distillation process to life, taking guests through the process and teaching them about the botanicals that go into the gin.

It concludes in the Red Door bar, where visitors can sample a Red Door G&T.

The new Red Door Gin Experience is managed by Susan Colville, who also runs the tours of Benromach Distillery.

Lizzie Haw, Red Door Gin’s distiller, said: “We’re immensely proud of our handcrafted Highland gin and are thrilled to – literally – throw open the red door and give gin fans the chance to see the distillery in action, while sampling the best we have to offer.

“We’ve worked with an incredible team to bring the Red Door Gin visitor experience to life and look forward to giving visitors a chance to learn about our handcrafted gin, while boosting the tourist offering in the Speyside region.

“The launch of the Red Door Gin Experience makes the historic Forres distillery the only place in Speyside to offer gin and whisky visitor attractions at one site.”
