Double Gold Triumph: Highclere Castle Gin Shines in Enthusiast Report Magazine

- Advertisement -

Highclere Castle Spirits has once again proven its excellence in the world of premium spirits, with both of its flagship gins earning top honors in the current issue of Enthusiast Report Magazine. The Highclere Castle Barrel Aged Gin received the coveted Double Gold award, while the Highclere Original Gin was awarded a prestigious Gold, highlighting the brand’s dedication to quality and craftsmanship.

Highclere Castle, home to the Carnarvon family since 1679, has a rich history intertwined with the origins of gin in England. The estate’s ancient herb gardens, originally planted in the ninth century by the Bishops of Winchester, provide the botanicals that define the unique character of Highclere Castle Gin. With a delicate balance of juniper, lime flower, orange peel, and a touch of lavender, this gin captures the essence of Highclere’s storied landscape. Whether enjoyed traditionally with tonic water or as a base for your favorite cocktail, Highclere Castle Gin offers a taste of history and heritage.

Launched in 2019, Highclere Castle Gin was created with the mission to produce the finest gin in the world, celebrating the estate’s longstanding tradition of entertaining with elegance and sophistication. Today, Highclere continues to host a diverse array of prominent guests, from statesmen to celebrities, where the evening always begins with gin cocktails reminiscent of the 1920s. This commitment to hospitality and excellence is embodied in every bottle of Highclere Castle Gin.

The botanicals used in Highclere Castle Gin are meticulously selected from the estate’s gardens, including lavender grown in the monks’ garden and oats that have been cultivated on the estate since the 13th century. These ingredients contribute to the gin’s unparalleled complexity and flavor. Distilled above an ancient underground water source at England’s oldest gin distillery, Langley Distillery, the gin is produced in one of the oldest working copper stills, dating back to the 1800s. The resulting high-proof gin is then blended with water to precisely 43.5% alcohol, a proof found to best express its rich dimensions of flavor.

The recognition from Enthusiast Report Magazine not only celebrates Highclere Castle Gin’s superior quality but also reinforces its standing as a unique Anglo-American collaboration. Created by spirits entrepreneur Adam von Gootkin and the 8th Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, Highclere Castle Gin merges British pedigree and style with American innovation and a relentless pursuit of perfection. These awards are a testament to the exceptional partnership and the dedication to crafting a gin that is both a tribute to its historical roots and a modern masterpiece.
