Tucked away in the lowlands of Aberdeenshire, the House of Elrick Estate is one steeped in rich history. It was built at the height of the Scottish Enlightenment period in 1720. During that time, it hosted lively discussions from some of the most respected creative, philosophical and scientific minds of the time. The house has only passed hands 5 times in 300 years, owned by a long line of entrepreneurs, who frequently visited Florence, Italy to broaden their horizons.
On return to the estate, the family sought to host company that would continue the philosophical, scientific and creative discussion of the time, encouraging the expansion of free-thinking over blind faith and thus saw a number of creative and maverick individuals pass through their doors. Later the house was to be visited by Bonnie Prince Charlie who gifted the Jacobite rose to the estate. It can now be found growing in the beautiful walled garden at the heart of the grounds.
A Small Selection
The Gin is distilled by hand in batches of 600 bottles per run, which means they can maintain control over every bottle that leaves the distillery. The Botanicals are still handpicked before each distillation. The handcrafted, artisan gin is one of the finest available. Botanicals hand-picked by our Master of Gin are a complement of juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root and citrus peel, built around a core of heather, pink peppercorns, sweet fennel and rose petals.
As refreshing as it is aromatic, it is the only spirit made with the freshest water from Loch Ness. The resulting taste profile provides a fresh, yet earthy, bold infusion of flavours that can be enjoyed on ice or as part of a beautifully crafted cocktail.
