Darnley's Original Gin
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.
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.
Lemon peel dried in the Spanish sunshine adds a fresh crisp bite.
The woody notes of dried angelica root from France helps to make our gin dry.
Coriander seed from Morocco contributes warm, gingery, sage like flavours and a soft spiciness.
We source our orris from the Benelux countries and its aromatic fragrant notes contribute earthy complex flavours and hints of Parma Violet.
