Caorunn Gin has been around for an amazing 10 years and they are celebrating by launching a new raspberry-flavoured expression. However, unlike many other new berry-flavoured gins, this one isn’t pink.
Crafted at Balmenach Distillery in the Scottish Highlands, Caorunn’s new Scottish Raspberry Gin is produced by infusing five locally-foraged botanicals with six more traditional gin botanicals and Perthshire raspberries in small 1,000 litre batches.
This new Caorunn edition is infused in what they believe to be the world’s only working Copper Berry Chamber.
Bottled at 41.8% ABV, Caorunn Scottish Raspberry combines the dry, crisp taste we have all come to know and love from Caorunn, but with a new natural raspberry sweetness.
Caorunn recommends their new gin is best served with Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water, over ice with a garnish of fresh raspberries and red apple slices.
Gin master Simon Buley said:
“We’re incredibly proud to be introducing our very first flavoured gin just ahead of our 10-year anniversary of Caorunn gin, here at Balmenach Distillery.
“Caorunn Scottish Raspberry leverages the same trusted process that has made Caorunn gin such a success over the last decade. This process, paired with the unique infusion of Perthshire raspberries has allowed us to create a bright, clean and fruity gin that we’re incredibly proud to be adding to our range.”
The Scottish Gin Society team were lucky enough to get to try this exciting new gin and we think it’s a real delight for those who prefer a fruity flavour profile.
It has a summer berry aroma and distinct notes of sweet red fruit on the palate, however, the finish is not too sweet, in fact, it is surprisingly crisp. But the real surprise about this delicious edition of a classic gin is that it’s not pink – not even a tint!
