Caorunn at Balmenach Distillery

Operated by: International Beverage Holdings Ltd.

Balmenach Distillery, a working malt whisky distillery in the Speyside region of the Scottish Highlands was first licensed in 1824 by James McGregor. One of the distillers, namely Simon Buley was also a gin aficionado and for a while had played with the idea of making a truly Scottish Gin at our working malt whisky distillery.  He wanted especially to use the ancient skills and recipes of spirit making and to harness the uniquely pure Scottish water and the age old Celtic botanicals that grow on Speyside. The production  of Caorunn started in 2009.  Gin master Simon handpicks the 5 local botanicals from the hills surrounding the breath-taking setting of Balmenach Distillery in the Cairngorms National Park, when they’re in season. The botanicals are infused to perfection in the world’s only working Copper Berry Chamber. Built in the 1920s, it was originally designed to extract essential oils to use as a base for perfumes.
