Caorunn Small Batch Gin Review

Caorunn Small Batch Scottish GinOn Wednesday Night i was lucky enough to partake in the #AlliedGlassTT tweet tasting organised by Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) from The Whisky Wire and to sample a range of Gins including this Caorunn Small Batch Scottish Gin.

Fabulous fruity and creamy Gin, lots and lots going on in here, and probably the strongest nose of the set we tried, lots of lovely appley/orchard notes (which is why it goes great with a slice of apple in the G&T serve) along with citrus fruit and pickled lemons.

Easily my favourite of the evening.

You can pick up a bottle from Specialists like Master of Malt
