Highclere Castle Gin
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. The winner of 18 gold awards, buy it, try it and gift it!
Burns Night - Virtual Cocktail Party
Thank you for joining us at our virtual cocktail parties of 2020. We’re delighted to continue this new tradition, and welcome you to another virtual cocktail evening on Friday 29th January. We invite you to join in, choosing from a selection of Highclere themed cocktails in our official brochure.
Burns Night is celebrated on 25th January, being the birthday of the much admired Scottish poet Robert Burns. In other years, Lord and Lady Carnarvon may have celebrated with a wonderful themed dinner and much poetry and laughter. This year however, we will be celebrating Burns Night with our very own Highclere spin. Join Lord and Lady Carnarvon as they make a selection of delicious Gin cocktails. One of Lord Carnarvon’s favourite recipes is the Boozy Bramble Pudding (the recipe can be found on page 252 in At Home at Highclere), and one of the cocktails will be inspired by this. Then of course we shall enjoy some haggis, and even a dram or two of whisky! Have the Anadin extra at the ready the next day!
We hope we can offer a much-needed distraction to help get over the January blues in these deeply challenging times.
We are delighted to celebrate the fact that Highclere Castle gin has now won 18 gold awards. It has become a much sought-after favourite, having launched in September 2019.
