Try a wildly sophisticated Scottish gin this Burns Night

If you are celebrating the Scottish national Bard on Burns Night with a traditional supper of Haggis, neeps and tatties, why not add some Caorunn Gin to the toasting options?

One for those who may want a wider choice than the usual malts on offer and secretly yearn for a clear Scottish spirit, yet still want to remain true to the evening’s Celtic roots.

The small batch Scottish gin will whisk you away to Speyside with its highland glens, lochs and home to Caorunn where the gin is handmade.

Caorunn gin is handcrafted with locally foraged botanicals including dandelion leaf, heather, Coul blush apple, bog myrtle and rowan berry with six traditional gin botanicals and natural Scottish spring water. Fresh and floral on the nose, this gin is clean, sweet, full-bodied and aromatic with a long-lasting crisp finish.

If you need a warming drink in the chilly January weather try a Caorunn Tincture Toddy.
