NEW WESTERN STYLE – HIGHLAND GIN

No.8

This lovely, slightly dry, smooth gin with just a hint of juniper in the bouquet has a flowery, rose petal beginning, reflecting the rosehip and meadowsweet ingredients. See if you can detect the slightly peppery aftertaste, not unlike some whiskey. This complex gin has many subtle taste undertones.

Details

NEW WESTERN STYLE – HIGHLAND GIN

No.17

We at the Fairytale Distillery are always looking to add to our list of Highland Gins. This time we seek to recreate the ‘Spirit of the Glens’ by using only those botanics present in the Highlands of Scotland which, together with the pure spring water of Alt Mor na Dornie high above the Distillery,combine to give this unique gin its distinctive flavour.

Details

NEW WESTERN STYLE – HIGHLAND GIN

No.2

The delicate citrus bouquet is hard to detect but the lemony beginning with a sweetish after taste makes this a very refreshing gin, certainly one for those hot summer days!

Details

OLD TOM – HIGHLAND GIN

Strong ethereal top notes, candy drop-like, berry-like, lime, orange peel, floral notes, orange blossoms, elderflower, green tea, subtly juniper-like, a lot of rose oil, lavender, coriander, cardamom, thyme, malty sweetness, good tightness and length, warming finish, unconventional concept.

No.57

Aromatic repetition on the palate, subtle juniper basis, woody, coniferous and resinous accents, citrus, lime, orange peel, lavender, tonka bean, spignel, some lovage, compact, full-bodied, good length.

Details

SUMMER EDITION – HIGHLAND GIN

No. 57 

To its acclaimed taste a subtle juniper basis, woody, coniferous and resinous accents, the increase in alcohol content has given this version a sweet, Summer freshness, which we liken to a subtle taste of Mandarin and Kumquat.

Details

SLOE – HIGHLAND GIN

No.64

You still get the award winning gin taste ( a delicate juniper with an oil pungency, orange like, slight mushroom notes, a hint of lavender with a full bodied and long aftertaste) but subtly flavoured with the Sloes.

Details
