Winner of 59 international spirits awards with multiple ratings of 96, Highclere Castle Gin was created to celebrate the “true spirit” of Highclere Castle, recognized by millions of fans as “the real Downton Abbey”. Over the centuries and through today, Highclere has hosted many of the world’s most famous and interesting people where for the last 100 years evening revelries have begun with gin cocktails. Lord & Lady Carnarvon continue that tradition today.
Highclere Castle Gin is distilled from a blend of botanicals grown on Highclere Castle’s ancient estate including vibrant oranges from the Victorian Orangery and lavender planted in the 9th century. This exceptionally smooth London Dry Gin integrates juniper, orange zest, lime flower, cardamom, and other botanicals. Highclere Castle Gin is the first gin in the world to integrate oats. Grown on the Highclere estate, these oats create a creamy, velvety finish to the gin that has many gin aficionados claiming Highclere as the first gin in the world you can sip straight on the rocks. Bottled at 43.5% ABV, it is quickly becoming a must-have in the world of cocktail mixology. Highclere Castle Gin is distilled in England’s oldest gin distillery and the bottle is custom produced in England.
For fans of Downton Abbey, this gin hails from the owners of Highclere Castle, where the series was filmed, and made with botanicals inspired by those grown in the Castle’s herb garden. Look for a citrusy aroma and demure hints of pink peppercorn, mint and lavender, plus a mouthwatering salinity. A floral note emerges on the mentholated exit.
