Highclere Castle gin is inspired by botanicals hand chosen from the castles herb gardens, originally planted in the ninth century by the Bishops of Winchester.
With a delicate balance of juniper, lime flowers, orange peel and a touch of lavendar, it is the true essence of Highcleres ancient estate.
Enjoy traditionally with tonic water or as a base for your favourite cocktail.
Distilled above an ancient underground water source, Highclere Castle Gin is a traditional London Dry Gin produced in England’s oldest gin distillery in an antique copper still which dates back to the 1800s.
The recipe was meticulously developed by Lord and Lady Carnarvon over two years, experimenting with botanicals grown on the Highclere Estate and was influenced by their gardens. 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. As an unusual but delicious twist, Highclere’s acclaimed estate-grown oats have been woven into the botanical blend to give an exceptionally creamy palate and a long and memorable finish. These oats are grown on the high chalk downlands of the Highclere Farm.
