Tobermory Distillery – one of the world’s oldest distilleries- is set to add to its portfolio of spirits with the launch of a new Scottish Gin.
The distillery (owned by South African firm Distell) already produces Tobermory and Ledaig whisky brands. Following an extensive refurbishment, they have re-opened and announced the launch of their first gin
Tobermory Gin is inspired by the expressive nature of Isle of Mull, the second largest island in the Inner Hebrides, where it is created. A splash of spirit from the Tobermory whisky stills is added to the GNS before distillation, to add a unique character.
It is then distilled on the island with a rich palate of hand-selected botanicals including juniper, tea, heather, elderflower, sweet orange peel, using knowledge from the distillery’s 220 years of history.
On the nose: Notes of fresh juniper balanced with citrus and coriander notes, with a touch of maltiness.
On the palate: Fresh juniper balanced with sweet orange and lemon, hints of coriander, gentle herbs and spices, with a luxurious, creamy mouth-feel and a subtle hint of sweet malt.
Finish: Long and lingering, fresh and citrus.
They suggest a Tobermory G&T is made with a Sprig of Thyme, Fresh Blood Red Orange Slice, Pinch of Dried Hibiscus Flowers, Chilled Quality Tonic Water.
We will bring you more news of the launch of Tobermory Gin soon.
Please drink Scottish Gin responsibly.
