We don’t do things like other gin makers. Since 2009, Caorunn Gin has been handcrafted in small batches at Balmenach Distillery in the Speyside region of the Scottish Highlands. How can a gin shine through in a region famous for its whisky? Well, it all starts with a name. 

Caorunn {pronounced ‘ka-roon’} is from the Gaelic word for ‘Rowan Berry’. What’s in a name, we hear you ask? The humble rowan berry is one of five unique Celtic botanicals that are at the heart of our gin. We use Scotland’s natural pantry to hand-forage the rowan berry along with our four other Celtic botanicals; all of which can be found within a ten-minute walk of the distillery. We then pair these with six traditional gin botanicals, to create our genius recipe. Clever, eh?

We don’t stop there though. As we are the only gin in the world to be distilled in a working Copper Berry Chamber. This unique process allows us to extract maximum flavour from our botanicals and sets us apart from the rest. That’s not just ingenious, that’s Gin Genius.
