The Red Door Gin experience opens its doors at Benromach Distillery in Forres this month, creating the region’s first single site whisky and gin visitor attraction, say the company.
The new visitor attraction will give gin customers the chance learn the story of Red Door Gin, from the history of the distillery to the secrets of how the distillers create each handcrafted batch of Highland gin.
Housed behind the distillery’s red door, the one hour tour will bring the distillation process to life while introducing guests to “Peggy” – the small copper pot still where every batch of Red Door Gin is carefully handmade by the on-site team.
Lizzie Haw, Red Door Gin’s flavour expert, said, “We’re immensely proud of our handcrafted Highland gin and are thrilled to – literally – throw open the red door and give gin fans the chance to see the distillery in action, while sampling the best we have to offer.
“We’ve worked with an incredible team to bring the Red Door Gin visitor experience to life and look forward to giving visitors a chance to learn about our handcrafted gin, while boosting the tourist offering in the Speyside region.”
The launch of the Red Door Gin experience makes this historic Forres distillery the only place in Speyside to offer gin and whisky visitor attractions at one site.
