Highclere Castle London Dry Gin
The Botanicals in Highclere Castle Gin are influenced by the gardens and the historical memories and associations. The taste and style begin with the juniper at the heart of the gin, to which is added the touch of lavender inspired by the borders in the Monks' Garden, followed by lime flower and orange peel. These two scented plants which give us such delight. As an unusual but delicious twist, Highclere's acclaimed estate grown oats have been woven into our botanical blend to give an exceptionally creamy palate as a long and memorable finish. The gardens, orangery and greenhouses lie at the centre of Lord and Lady Carnarvon's life, giving much enjoyment and precious moments of relaxation. The oats are grown on the high chalk downlands of the Highclere farm. Records from the 13th century testify that oats have been grown at Highclere and today remain a key element of the landscape for food, to add to our gin and as part of conservation and diversity.
