  • Highland Gin – Festive

    £17.50£39.50

    With the Festive Season looming, the images of family get togethers, open fires, mulled wine and Christmas decorations come readily to mind. The festive mood quickly builds and the excitement rises as we contemplate the warmth inside countering the cold weather. We believe that our Highland Festive Gin neatly fits in to this scenario, whether it be as a warming, spicy drink or as a gift for those we love. Fragrance | Alongside the juniper aroma is, in equal parts, that of spice, cranberry, cloves and liquorice. This balanced fragrance gives a warm feeling. Taste | On the palate, the typical juniper flavour follows the fragrance with a balance of spice, cloves and orange peel. It continues with a strong warm, sweet  finish of dates, cranberry, pomegranate and lemon-grass.

  • Fragrance | A nice juniper berry presence, delicately resinous and coniferous, quite broad coniferous spectrum. Delicate citrus, buckthorn, rosehip, woodruff, quince, coriander, thyme, wild berries, quite floral, violet, lavender, rose blossom, delicately rooty and earthy. Taste | An aromatic image of the fragrance appears on the palate, juniper berry, a lot of wild berries, almost yeasty, quite fruity, medicinal and quince-like, quite a lot of juniper, mint, coriander, thyme, lavender, violet and rose. It has a smooth finish.

  • Fragrance | Both Juniper and Orange fragrancies predominate; the typical juniper is balanced by a nice orange peel freshness, with aspects of apricot, bitter orange and allspice coming through.  Taste | On the palate, very typical juniper with the freshness of orange peel at the beginning; the fleshy and juicy texture is maintained leading to a delicate slightly spicy finish.

  • Fragrance | A concept of oriental spices together with fragrances from the forest. Thus the intense spice fragrancies of incense, cardamom, cinnamon, aniseed and pimento, are joined by the clear fragrance of juniper berries, subtle fresh citrus flavours of lemon peel and orange and vegetal reflections of mint and eucalyptus. Taste | On the palate it is an aromatic copy of the fragrance. The spice content of cardamom, ginger and pimento has a strong presence as does the juniper, broad citrus peel and a floral diversity of violet, lavender and rose blossom. It is compact and full bodied.

     
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Highland Gin No. 64

    £17.50£41.00

    The Parliament Enclosures Act of 1773 was enacted to divide up formerly common land to provide legal property rights for prospective landowners. The hedgerows that were constructed to divide up the land were commonly constructed of Blackthorn, Prunus spinosa, creating  bumper crops of Sloe berries that, although they were tart and astringent by themselves, were soon used by the locals to add to gin.  Simply adding the Sloes made the gin of that time more palatable, and the staple English Autumnal beverage was born.

    At the Fairytale Distillery while we support the traditional way to make Sloe Gin: we obtain the best Sloes, use one of our 2020 World Spirits Award winning gins but do not use sugar!  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. This gives our Highland Gin Number 64 a plum like addition, with a hint of dark chocolate, raisin, creating a harmonious and a slightly sweet almond like finish.

    Fragrance | A light sloe gin version, subtle juniper berry notes in the basis, delicately sloe-juicy, rather fresh and cherry-like, delicate roast aromas, reminiscent of stewed plums, vanilla, orange peels, cinnamon, dried fruits, some cinnamon, delicately rooty, black tea, a touch of lovage. Taste | Very strong bitter almond characteristic, stony and roasty, only subtly sloe- and juniper-like, somewhat resinous and coniferous, marzipan, citrus, caramel, cloves, mint, slightly oxydized notes, green walnuts, elegant balance of sugar and acid, fairly full-bodied and long.

  • Highland Absinthe

    £19.00£49.00

    Fragrance | Unconventional aroma concept, slightly fruity and apple-like with berry-like overtones of red currant, raspberry, citrus and lemon balm coming through. Hardly noticeable bitterness with wormwood, anise, eucalyptus, mushroom notes present. Taste | On the palate the unconventional concept continues, green banana, cucumber,  sweet spices, fennel seeds, coriander, cinnamon come through together with a delicate bitterness and oily finish. For those of you not so familiar with Absinthe, perhaps a little background knowledge might be helpful. It is believed that Absinthe, historically described as an anise-flavoured spirit derived from plants, originated in Switzerland, in the canton region of Neuchatel, in the late 18th century.It arose to great popularity as an alcoholic drink in the late 19th and early 20th century France, particularly among Parisian artists and writers, although its consumption then was opposed by social conservatives and prohibitionists who described Absinthe as a dangerously addictive and psychoactive drug and a hallucinogen! By 1915, Absinthe had been banned in the United States as well as many European countries. Recent studies have shown that its psychoactive properties have been exaggerated and that it has not been demonstrated to be any more dangerous than ordinary spirits. The revival of Absinthe began in the 1990's, following the adoption of modern European Union food and beverage laws which removed long-standing barriers to its sale. Since the best way to produce Absinthe is by a distillation process similar to that of high quality gins, it was natural to us to bring our skills to the production this spirit. The high ABV of Absinthe (typically 45-74% ABV) attracted us, since we had received a degree of success with our own Navy Strength Gins (ABV 57.1%). Furthermore, our botanists Martin and Stefan, had a profound knowledge of Absinthe's basic herbs such as Artemisia absinthium (grand wormwood), green anise and sweet fennel. Moreover, they could bring their considerable botanical knowledge, to recommend the addition of further medicinal and culinary herbs to enhance our version of Absinthe.We call our version of Absinthe “ The Green Fairy; it is produced using our high technology still and uses the highest quality spirit and the spring fed water from the burn Allt Mor na Dornie, which combine to offer a high quality Absinthe experience with an ABV of 66%. How you drink Absinthe is also very interesting. It is well known that in order to fully appreciate this anise- flavoured spirit it is best to dilute it with ice cold water. The best way is to drizzle ice cold water on to a sugar cube suspended above your glass on a spoon. We recommend you seek out a reservoir glass and Absinthe spoon for this purpose; we can supply both.
