Constructed at the height of the Scottish Enlightenment period in 1720, the House of Elrick was the home of an entrepreneurial family of cattle farmers and millers, and has passed hands only 5 times in almost 300 years. Well-travelled and curious, members of the household often visited Florence Italy, a country already swept by European Enlightenment thinking, returning with tales of new science and philosophical learnings that echoed the writings of many of the leading Scottish Enlightened thinkers of the time. Our hand crafted, artisan gin is one of the finest available. Botanicals hand-picked by our Master of Gin are a complement of juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root and citrus peel, built around a core of heather, pink peppercorns, sweet fennel and rose petals. As refreshing as it is aromatic, it is the only spirit made with the freshest water from Loch Ness. The resulting taste profile provides a fresh, yet earthy, bold infusion of flavours. When crafting the absolute best in premium spirits, quality over quantity is key. Our liquid is distilled by hand in batches of 600 bottles per run, which means we can maintain control over every bottle that leaves our distillery. Botanicals are handpicked before each distillation through our bespoke pot still.
Bold aromas of citrus and rose petal. Fresh, fruity and fragrant with many hints of many of the botanicals coming through. The palate is focused and dry. Earthy, but with a fresh fruity sweetness and floral hints balanced with a mild peppery edge. The finish is smooth and lingering with a touch of spice.
