Product of: United Kingdom
The 'house gin' of Highclere Castle, famous for being the home of the Earl and Countess of Grantham in TV's Downton Abbey.
Distilled at England's oldest gin distillery using the traditional London Dry process and classic botanicals including juniper, angelica, cassia, orange and lemon peel. These are supplemented with botanicals from the castle's own gardens such as lavender, inspired by the borders in the Monks' Garden. The recipe, developed with the 8th Earl & Countess of Carnarvon (the real-life occupants of the house) over two years, also includes Highclere's estate-grown oats.
