Founder, Sandy Matheson, is on an adventure of his own to create a gin that truly captures the spirit and freshness of the Scottish mountains.
A year after establishing the company in 2016 - and 80 test distillations later - Sandy found the unique blend of botanicals that captures the essence of the Highlands and makes Granite North Gin stand out from the crowd.
A keen hillwalkers, Sandy and partner Kirstie have always been inspired by the dramatic landscape of the Cairngorms and the idea to create their own gin came to them while climbing Braeriach in the heart of the Cairngorms. The pair have combined their love of gin and passion for the outdoors in a bold venture to create a new gin from the North East of Scotland.
Taking its name from the rock so closely associated with the North East of Scotland, Granite North Gin is inspired by the rugged peaks and ancient forests of the Scottish Highlands.
Developed for the modern adventurer, Granite North is a smooth London gin packed with flavour. A juniper-forward gin, its fresh, citrus taste is smooth enough to drink on its own or with a light tonic to release even more of its zesty flavour and is robust enough to stand up and stand out in cocktails.
Its outdoor personality is revealed in the subtle infusion of Grand Fir needles that complement the native taste of its juniper cousin, helping to summon the fresh aromas of the pure mountain air.
