Opening the Red Door to gin

Red Door Gin launches today. Named after the distinctive red doors at Benromach Distillery, Red Door is a small-batch, handcrafted London Dry style gin.

Inspired by Scotland’s mountains, forests and coastal fringes, Red Door has been lovingly created by a dedicated team of distillers using the finest botanicals to create an elegantly distinctive gin.

Red Door Gin delivers signature notes of juniper and a defining citrus note of bitter orange, with aromatic sea buckthorn, floral pearls of heather and chocolatey rowanberries.
