Highclere Castle Gin

Summer 2020

Following the first real not just virtual cocktail party in the gardens last Friday, we are provisionally planning a second one on Friday September 4th, and will look forward to welcoming guests here as well as  livestreaming  from 7pm UK time, across our social media channels.

In keeping with Highclere Castle's grand tradition of entertaining the most prestigious of guests, we would like to invite you to taste the world's finest Estate Gin. Highclere Castle symbolises a legacy of elegance, hard work, passion and a reputation for perfection and Highclere Castle Gin was designed to reflect this ethos and celebrate the beauty of a by gone era, where elegance reigned supreme. 

Distilled above an ancient underground water source, Highclere Castle Gin is a traditional London Dry Gin produced in England’s oldest gin distillery in an antique copper still which dates back to the 1800s.

The recipe was meticulously developed by Lord and Lady Carnarvon over two years, experimenting with botanicals grown here on the Highclere Estate and was influenced by our gardens. The taste and style begin with the juniper at the heart of the gin, to which is added the touch of lavender inspired by the borders in the Monks’ Garden, followed by lime flower and orange peel. As an unusual but delicious twist, Highclere’s acclaimed estate-grown oats have been woven into the botanical blend to give an exceptionally creamy palate and a long and memorable finish. These oats are grown on the high chalk downlands of the Highclere Farm.
