Named after the Celtic word for ‘rowan berry’ – one of its key botanicals – Caorunn Gin was launched in 2009, and quickly became a favourite of gin drinkers looking for something different. It uses a number of other hand-foraged Celtic botanicals, including dandelion, heather, Coul Blush apples and bog myrtle, which are infused in Caorunn’s ‘copper berry chamber’
Caorunn vs Hendrick’s
Both Caorunn and Hendrick’s have impressed gin drinkers across the globe, but did you know they are both made at whisky distilleries? Caorunn’s home is Balmenach distillery in Speyside, while Hendrick’s hails from William Grant’s Girvan grain distillery in Ayrshire.
