A splash of spirit from whisky stills makes this GIN unique!

Unique to Tobermory Gin, a splash of spirit from the Tobermory whisky stills is added, creating a standout spirit! This is one to try for gin AND whisky lovers!

The story

Established in 1798, Tobermory is the only whisky distillery on the Isle of Mull. The distillery is also one of the oldest in Scotland, producing one of the oldest Single Malts! Last year the distillery team were keen to expand their skills and produce their first gin…

 

On Mull, they celebrate creativity and this is evident in the colourful houses of Tobermory, framed by the rich and dramatic landscape of the beautiful island. Definitely one of the most picturesque places to have a distillery!

 

It was important for the team to create something truly original and unique so when the opportunity arose to secure a redundant John Dore & Co copper still from South Africa… it was perfect timing!

 

Using a splash of spirit from Tobermory’s famous whisky stills, along with a mix of botanicals (some hand foraged on the island) Tobermory Gin is super delicious and definitely one you need to try!

 

The GIN

Inspired by the expressive nature of Mull, a splash of spirit from the Tobermory whisky stills is added to create the interesting character to this award winning gin. Distilled on the island with a rich palate of hand-selected botanicals including juniper, tea, heather, elderflower, sweet orange peel, and just a little bit of knowledge from our 220 years of history!

Process

Tobermory Gin starts life as a blank canvas.  The base spirit they use has been distilled over and over until it is just that.  Clean, fresh and ready to take on a colourful array of flavour. All of the botanicals are steeped for a minimum of 24 hours in the base spirit.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Notes of fresh juniper balanced with citrus and coriander notes, with a touch of maltiness.

Palate: Fresh juniper balanced with sweet orange and lemon, hints of coriander, gentle herbs and spices, with a luxurious, creamy mouth-feel and a subtle hint of sweet malt.

Finish: Long and lingering, fresh and citrus.

 

 

Perfect Serve:

Fill balloon gin glass with copious amounts of ice and a good measure of Tobermory Hebridean Gin.

Garnish with a sprig of Thyme, Fresh Blood Red Orange slice, pinch of dried Hibiscus Flowers, and chilled quality Tonic Water.
