Balmenach Distillery: Caorunn Gin

Caorunn Gin is the taste of wild sophistication – an expert infusion of five locally foraged botanicals and six traditional botanicals.  It is traditionally served with cool fizzing tonic and slices of red apple to highlight its aromatic flavour profile, however our gin is beautifully versatile which means its also perfect for any classic or contemporary cocktail.

Caorunn Gin is a Modern “London Dry” Gin. It has a dry and crisp, aromatic taste adventure and a long dry finish.

What makes Caorunn so remarkable? The answer is simple – it’s all in our unique blend of botanicals.

Caorunn, pronounced ‘ka-roon’, is the Gaelic word for Rowan Berry. This is a Celtic botanical that forms the very soul of our gin. Infusing a total of eleven botanicals in our unique Copper Berry Chamber, we harness Scotland’s unique natural resources and age old botanicals to mouth-watering effect. Wild, foraged Scottish Highland botanicals.
