September’s Scottish Gin Club discovery gin is produced at Peebles Hydro Hotel by 1881 Distillery. This award-winning Scottish spirit is bottled at 57% and so-named to recognise the role of the Hydro as a military hospital during WWII.
Honours Gin is small batch produced in a 150L still nicknamed “Felicity” and the majority of all botanicals used in production are sourced from the grounds of the Hydro itself. With this and their private water source, Honours Navy Strength Gin is a true spring to spirit gin.
The Perfect Serve
Serve over ice, with a premium tonic, a swirl of fresh orange to garnish.
On the nose Honours Gin is earthy and spiced. To taste this is a smooth and juniper-led spirit. To finish the spirit is dry and lightly spiced.
