For World Gin Day each year, people from all corners of the globe come together to celebrate all things gin - enjoying everything from cocktail parties to gin tasting events.
Yet with social distancing measures currently in place, this year’s celebrations, taking place on Saturday 13th June, are set to look rather different. Luckily though, we’re here to prove that staying home doesn’t mean having to miss out.
We have teamed up with renowned food creative, Caroline Hobkinson, to bring you an at-home gin sensory experience like no other.
Influencing the way we enjoy gin, our new short films, which will be uploaded to the @caorunngin Instagram feed for World Gin Day, will reveal how sound, smell, and sight play an integral role in invigorating our taste buds and impacting the flavours of our Scottish botanicals.
Brought to life by Caroline Hobkinson, the videos will transport viewers to the Scottish Highlands and brings to life our five locally foraged Celtic botanicals, dandelion, heather, Coul Blush apple, bog myrtle and rowan berry, as well as the six traditional gin botanicals that go into making it.
Gin lovers will be able to enjoy this immersive experience from anywhere in the world. Simply rally your friends and family together around a virtual picnic table or digital sofa, and be transported to the Highlands without having to leave the house.
For the experiences you'll need:
Smell - Apple Sorbet
Recipe for the Apple Sorbet: 6 red Coul Blush or Gala apples (or 1 litre of apple juice) | 1 tsp of ground cinnamon | 50g of brown sugar (only if making your own juice)
Sound - Soundscape
Sight - Colour
