Our team are all gin-obsessed in the best way possible, and creating unique gin flavours that stand out from the crowd is our constant pursuit.
Below you’ll find some of our most radical flavoured gin that you absolutely have to try in 2023.
Let’s take a look at the list of our top Scottish flavoured gins in more detail.
- Oaked Spice Gin
Wait, oaked spice gin? Can’t only rums and whiskeys be spiced?
Well, not anymore!
The Kinrara Oaked Spice Gin is the perfect gin for cold days and nights. It has been lovingly created using a combination of Tonka beans, cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg and vanilla, as well as some chipped American Oak to add that oaky taste and aroma that comes through in a subtle yet pleasant way.
Gin lovers will notice a warm cinnamon taste to this gin, along with hints of fizzy cola bottles and mulled wine to compliment the toasted oak taste. The gin has a long and complex finish which is perfectly balanced between warm spice and citrus fruit.
We recommend trying this flavoured gin with ginger ale, served neat with ice or even in a hot chocolate! We did warn you that we liked to push boundaries….
