Caorunn, pronounced 'ka-roon', is the Gaelic word for rowan berry which along with dandelion, bog myrtle, heather and Coul Blush apple comprise the 5 Celtic botanicals of the 11 botanicals used to flavour this proudly Scottish gin. The number of botanicals are reflected in the pentagon-shaped bottle

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 04/06/2017


Crystal clear.


Citrusy and floral with pine-fresh juniper and black pepper spice. It may be the power of suggestion, but there's also faint ripe red apple.


Fresh, superbly clean and balanced with piney juniper, zesty citrus, mild black pepper spice, light fruitiness and faint floral notes. Almost creamy, rounded mouthfeel.


Long, cleansing, lightly spiced piney juniper finish which fades with cracked black pepper spice. Very faint chocolate powder note.


Pronounced piney juniper - as you'd expect from a proper gin, with floral complexity and a rounded mouthfeel.
