Scottish Kings Gin Launches, Racks Up Big Wins
Boulder owned import has a “farm to bottle” approach
May 1, 2019: Scottish Kings, an ultra-premium, limited-distribution gin distilled in the Scottish Highlands, introduced availability in New York City and Colorado in late January 2019. Almost immediately the gin received top awards in two worldwide competitions.
Receiving a Double Gold Medal (meaning a unanimous choice by all the judges) from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Scottish Kings Gin was called “among the finest products in the world.” And it was awarded an “Exceptional” 93 Point rating and a Gold Medal from The International Review of Spirits conducted by the Beverage Tasting Institute/Tastings.com.
Scottish Kings is distilled in small batches on a rural Highland farm using quality botanicals and the famously pure waters of Scotland. The founder, Randy Miller, is a career journalist from Boulder, Colorado, and formed Scottish Kings with one mission in mind: To create the most desirable gin in history while uniting those who value uncompromising quality, exquisite taste, and a gin as unique as its birthplace.
“Just like the sensibilities of the farm-to-table movement in the U.S.A., Scottish Kings is created on a small farm in the remote Scottish Highlands where the air comes off the Arctic Circle and the water is clean and pure,” said Miller.
“The environment has a huge impact on the final product. After three years spent in recipe development, with a selection of unique botanicals (like basil and rose petal) and the use of a small 100 liter still, we got what we wanted – a gin that is pure and smooth with a balanced flavor profile.
“Many gins today are trying to be unique by being ‘forward something’. Scottish Kings is the ultimate classic gin that is rooted in London Dry tradition but with the advantages of hand-crafted processes in the remote Highlands. That’s why we call it Highland Dry.”
Scottish Kings is now available in select luxury restaurants, bars, and spirit retailers in Colorado and New York. (https://www.scottishkings.com/stockists).
