Thompson Bros. Organic Highland Gin 45.7%

Not content with establishing one of the World’s leading whisky bars in Dornoch, brothers Phil and Simon Thompson have upped their ambitions and started making their own whisky and gin on-site at Dornoch Castle Hotel, forming Dornoch’s first whisky distillery.

Their Organic Highland gin has been distilled from a blend of 10% Organic Plumage Archer Barley, slowly fermented and gently twice distilled with 90% Organic Grain Neutral Spirit which was infused with their house botanical blend. The two different spirits were then combined and slowly diluted to 45.7% abv.

Distillers Notes
Thompson Bros Organic Highland Gin has been distilled from a blend of 10% Organic Plumage Archer Barley, slowly fermented and gently twice distilled with 90% Grain Neutral Spirit which was infused with our house botanical blend. The two different spirits were then combined and slowly diluted to 45.7% abv.

This is a fantastic mixing gin, working well with traditional mixers. The 10% house made spirit provides body and texture but is balanced perfectly with our botanical bill providing gentle sweetness and light herbal notes.

Our preferred served in the Dornoch Castle Whisky Bar is with fresh lemon peel and a pinch of cracked black pepper.

Known as the water of life, whisky is a drink steeped in tradition. It starts with just two simple ingredients ( Malted Barley and Water ) run through copper stills then aged in Oak Barrels before being bottled and sold around the world to be enjoyed.
