Caorunn Gin has announced a new higher ABV gin, Caorunn Highland Strength, created specifically to enhance cocktails.
Gin Master Simon Buley crafted Caorunn Highland Strength at 54% ABV. “We find that with this higher ABV, the alcohol quickly evaporates in your mouth, leaving behind our beautiful botanical flavors that linger on your palate with a luxurious finish,” explained Buley.
This stronger version of Caorunn Gin infuses five Celtic botanicals (rowan berry, bog myrtle, heather, dandelion, and Coul Blush apple) with six traditional gin botanicals. According to Caorunn, this gin is peppery, fruity and herbaceous with a strong juniper character and minty aroma. This higher strength ABV gin is meant to enhance cocktails such as the gin & tonic or negroni. According to Caorunn, it allows the taste to carry through stronger and endure, ensuring a more prominent drink with a wider range of dilution and flavor profiles.
Caorunn Highland Strength gin is now available in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $40 per 750-ml. bottle.
