Red Door Highland Gin has released a limited edition bottling and it's ideal for summer cocktails.

Handcrafted in Forres, only 6,000 bottles of Red Door Highland Gin with Summer Botanicals will be released for sale.

The gin is crafted behind the distillery’s iconic red door in the small copper pot still, affectionately called ‘Peggy’.

Available now, Red Door Highland Gin with Summer Botanicals combines bright aromatic bergamot with the fresh citrus bite of bitter orange, balanced by delicate floral notes of rose petals and raspberries to deliver a delicious soft fruity finish.

The limited-edition gin can be served as classic G&T with fresh seasonal Scottish raspberries to garnish but comes into its own when used for lively summer cocktails like the Forres Fizz, which combines gin with fresh lime, soda water, mint and cucumber.

David Thomson, brand manager, Red Door Gin, said: “As the days start to get brighter and warmer, it’s the perfect time to start experimenting with new flavours and refresh the summer drinks cabinet.

"This special edition gin is refreshing and fruity making it ideal for al fresco entertaining or as a base for summery cocktails.

“As a small, handcrafted gin distillery we love to experiment with flavour combinations and create special editions that capture the season perfectly.
