Red Door Gin
London Dry Gin
Red Door // Highlands, Scotland
Produced at Benromach Distillery in the Highlands of Scotland, this gin is named after the distillery's distinctive red doors. Using the vapor-infusion distillation method, a copper pot still named Peggy steams a neutral base spirit into 8 botanicals which were selected to highlight Scotland's mountains, forests, and coastal fringes. These botanicals are juniper, bitter orange peel, sea buckthorn, pearls of heather, rowanberry, lemon peel, coriander seed, and angelica root.
London Dry GinNeutral spirit flavored with juniper and other botanicals. In the US, the minimum ABV is 40%; In the EU, it is 37.5%. Originally, only made in London, this can be made anywhere. No artificial flavors or colors can be added. Only water, neutral grain spirit, and sugar (no more than 0.1g/l) can be added.
"Very juniper forward, almost punchy in nature. The nose on this gin is very aromatic: Pine tree, sharp citrus and floral undertones demand your attention. The palate reveals Seville orange marmalade, lemon peel dipped in sugar and a crisp clean mouthfeel. Super dry finish with a lingering aftertaste of angelica root. Perfect example of a dry gin with a citrus bite. Some might consider the bitter component a little over the top or slightly unbalanced. Using a 2:1 tonic to gin ratio with a couple of red raspberries for garnish is recommended. "
