Gin Reed Door by Benromach unusual, not for everyone!
The Benromach Distillery was founded in 1898, by the hand of an alcohol dealer, F. W. Brickman, who joined in partnership with Duncan Mc Callum, then owner of the Glen Nevis distillery.
The history of the Benromach, located in Forres in the north of Scotland, is marked by continuous changes of ownership, and by more or less long closing periods, caused by prohibition, the Whiskey crisis, the economic depression of the '30s and conflicts world.
However, since 1993, the company is owned by Gordon & MacPhail, who had the merit of bringing the distillery to produce excellent quality Whiskey and now also a Red Door gin.
Using the best natural ingredients, starting from the water that flows from the springs of the nearby Romach Hills, and respecting the necessary slowness in the execution of each phase of the distillation process.
Benromach gin Red Door is handcrafted in tiny batches of just 450 liters at a time.
The smaller the lot, the better the control that can be exercised by the man in the stills.
A steam distillation method is used, through Peggy, the copper-crafted alembic, where the neutral spirit is evaporated by filtering through the botanicals, thus acquiring the flavors and aromas that make it possible to obtain a more delicate gin.
The botanicals used are: heather, juniper, coriander seeds, sea-buckthorn, rowan, lemon peel, bitter orange peel, angelica root.
You will never find another gin like Benromach gin Red Door with its infusions of heather, coriander and sea-green thorns.
It is a whole that produces an almost superhuman refreshing gin, with an incredibly delicious aroma.
Elegant and simple, beautifully balanced, Red Door Gin offers distinctive notes of juniper and bitter orange, aromatic hints of herbaceous shoots and heather.
