Darnley's Original Gin

Juniper

In our gin the distinctive pine, lavender camphor-like flavour of the juniper berry is the keynote around which all the other botanicals are built. We select the most aromatic, oil rich berries which grow in Southern Europe.

 

Lemon Peel

Lemon peel dried in the Spanish sunshine adds a fresh crisp bite.

 

Coriander Seed

Coriander seed from Morocco contributes warm, gingery, sage like flavours and a soft spiciness.

Elderflower

Elder trees grow freely on our Scottish estate. The delicate and fresh flavours of elderflower are not only a reminder of our Scottish heritage, they also add an extra special floral dimension to our gin.

 

 

Angelica Root

The woody notes of dried angelica root from France helps to make our gin dry.

 

Orris Root

We source our orris from the Benelux countries and its aromatic fragrant notes contribute earthy complex flavours and hints of Parma Violet.
