BERGAMOT, bitter orange and raspberries are among the botanicals in a new limited edition summer gin from Gordon & MacPhail’s Benromach distillery in Forres.
Red Door Highland Gin with Summer Botanicals is a 45% ABV gin which is said to combine “bright aromatic bergamot with the fresh citrus bite of bitter orange, balanced by delicate floral notes of rose petals and raspberries to deliver a delicious soft fruity finish”.
The seasonal gin is said to be best-served as a classic G&T garnished with fresh Scottish raspberries or in summer cocktails, such as the Forres Fizz – gin, fresh lime, soda water, mint and cucumber.
David Thomson, brand manager for Red Door Gin, said: “As a small, handcrafted gin distillery we love to experiment with flavour combinations and create special editions that capture the season perfectly. With only 6000 bottles available, we expect this gin to be hugely popular over the summer period.”
