If you ever needed another excuse to visit the beautiful Speyside region of the Scottish Highlands, this is it. 

Not only is our home Balmenach Distillery set in a spectacular backdrop, but our guided tour takes you on a journey to learn firsthand how our Copper Berry Chamber distillation process sets us apart from the rest.

Map of Scotland Balmenach Distillery

Based in the heart of Speyside

Our local Gin Geniuses will take you through what goes into making Caorunn, and not only that, but you’ll be able to appreciate the stunning surroundings where our Celtic botanicals are hand-foraged by the team. We know - we’re spoiling you now. Experience the unique opportunity to enjoy a tutored deconstructed nosing and tasting session. These sessions feature Caorunn’s five locally foraged and six traditional botanicals, botanical essences, and a neat sample of Caorunn. Taking all of this in is thirsty work, and so the tour experience is rounded off with a refreshing Caorunn perfect serve.

Discover how Caorunn Gin is made different.
