Tulchan a New Luxury Small Batch Gin From Speyside Launches

A new superpremium gin from Scotland has launched in the UK this month. Tulchan Gin, named after Tulchan Estate in Scotland, is a small batch gin distilled in Speyside. Its flavours are inspired by the terroir of the Estate, located on the banks of the River Spey.

Tulchan Gin is a juniper-forward London dry gin made with Scottish botanicals which include sloe berries, elderflower, blackberry leaves, and asparagus, which provides the gin with a bitter edge and long finish.

Presented in a luxury embossed blue glass bottle with tartan running down the side, reflecting the gin’s Scottish heritage. The label on the front of the bottle includes an illustration of the estate’s brand icon, the Grouse Piper, playing the bagpipes. The Grouse Piper is used to represent the proud, independent wild birds that live among the wild heather. A further nod to Tulchan Gin’s Scottish roots is the wooden cork stopper, which has a Scottish thistle stamp.
