This month's featured gin in our Scottish Gin Club comes from a micro distillery on a small peninsular in the Moray Firth in the north of Scotland.
Sutors Gin is an award-winning, characterful grain-to-glass gin which is a celebration of the Scottish Highlands in a bottle.
When the team at Sutors started on their gin journey they were very clear that they wanted to make the gin from scratch. This gives them full control over the processes and the spirit is tested and monitored at every stage to guarantee its quality.
The area surrounding the distillery is full of wheat and barley and as a nod to the farming heritage, the gin is made using the barley to give it its unique highland character.
The October Gin of the Month for our Scottish Gin Club members is the award-winning Old Tom Gin from Mackintosh Gin.
With the nights drawing in and the shorter days upon us, we feel that the super refreshing gin which is distilled with grapefruit and pineapple is the perfect pick-me-up while remembering the warmer days of summer.
This is the first time we've included an Old Tom gin in our subscription boxes so we've included a brief overview of this gin style.
What is Old Tom Gin?
Old Tom gin is slightly drier than a Dutch Genever but sweeter than London Dry. It was extremely popular in the 18th and 19th centuries before falling out of favour in the early 20th centur
The September Gin of the Month is Yuzu Gin which is part of the new Colours Range from Linlithgow Distillery.
Aside from being a deliciously refreshing gin, we also wanted to showcase this Yuzu Gin to highlight how different botanical combinations impact the flavour of the gin.
Those of you who also received our gin in August will know, one of the key botanicals in Purist Gin is also yuzu. However, this Yuzu Gin is very different in flavour to Purist Gin as the other botanicals used differ in flavour profile and quantity. You can read about the botanical mix in Purist Gin.
