Tulchan Gin is a Scottish gin that is handcrafted in small batches using locally sourced ingredients. The gin’s name is inspired by Tulchan Estate, a historic property that sits at the heart of Speyside, Scotland’s premier whisky region. The gin is a beautiful blend of botanicals that pays homage to the lush Scottish countryside.
Upon the first sip, you’ll notice the sweet juniper flavor, followed by a delightful burst of citrus and herbal notes, with a spicy finish. It’s a well-balanced gin, with a smooth texture and a subtle sweetness.
You don’t need to take my word for it…professional reviewers have praised Tulchan Gin for its complexity, smoothness, and versatility. Master of Malt has described it as a “superbly crafted” gin with “beautifully balanced” flavors. Gin Foundry praised its “floral freshness” and “spicy undertones,” and Difford’s Guide noted its “harmonious balance of botanicals.”
This gin is a versatile spirit that you can enjoy on its own or mix in a cocktail. Here are a few cocktail and recipe ideas:
- Tulchan Collins: Combine 50ml of Tulchan Gin, 25ml of fresh lemon juice, 15ml of simple syrup, and top up with soda water. Serve over ice and garnish with a lemon wedge and a sprig of mint.
- Tulchan Negroni: Combine 25ml of Tulchan Gin, 25ml of Campari, and 25ml of sweet vermouth. Stir well with ice and strain into a glass. Garnish with an orange peel.
- Marinate a butterflied leg of lamb with some fresh garlic and a few ounces of Tulchan Gin.
- Grill your favorite steak and flambé with an ounce or two of Tulchan Gin and a little fresh butter…mmmm, delish. Serve with some barely wilted spinach with a little drizzle of good olive oil.
Aside from Tulchan Gin being delightful to drink and cook with, the bottle is beautiful, gorgeously gift-able, and would look great on any bar cart. Go buy some; it’s a gin that’s worth trying…it makes me want to wear a kilt, it’s so good.
