Tulchan Gin, a luxurious, small-batch gin with distinctly local flavours inspired by the terroir of Tulchan Estate has landed in Australia. Distilled in Scotland’s Speyside, this gin has been crafted with both whisky drinkers and gin lovers in mind. 

The gin features 14 deliciously fragrant botanicals including sloe berries, elderflower and blackberry leaves. It also includes the unusual botanical of asparagus within its liquid,  which provides a bitter edge and long finish.  

The gin is beautifully presented in an embossed blue glass bottle with the gin’s own 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 character, ‘The Grouse Piper’, playing the bagpipes, and the wooden cork stopper has a Scottish thistle stamp. 

The attention to detail and constant connection back to the estate makes this gin the perfect Scottish gin for Australians to enjoy all year round and the ideal aperitif to begin your evening.

Surrounded by 22,000 acres of lochs and glens, Tulchan Estate captures the essence of Scotland itself, as does the gin that carries its name. Recently the estate received international accreditation for its ongoing work in wildlife management and conservation.
