Raven Gin: Thought & Memory

The North East welcomes Raven Gin, the latest premium dry gin to be distilled here in Aberdeenshire. Brothers Callum and Peter Sim, hand craft this classic London dry style gin at Banchory’s Deeside Distillery.

With notes of juniper, angelica, coriander, cassis, orris root, mandarin and cubeb pepper, this smooth gin has a hit of dark mandarin and a long spicy finish. An excellent quality gin, with 45% ABV that we believe best served simply with Fever Tree Light tonic and a twist of lemon.

However mixed with Chambord, Lime Juice and Fever Tree Ginger Ale, we also enjoyed the “Raven Gin Floradora”. Next on our list to try is the “Raven Gin Breakfast Martini” as we are both partial to this particular tipple.

The brothers took a year to perfect their gin, and it really shows on the palatte. Tasted neat this is a smooth, quality gin that takes your taste buds on a journey. We highly recommend you give it try.

As well as this regular offering the team have also created the “Founder’s Edition”, a more intense limited run of only 500 bottles from their very first distillation.
