Darnley’s Spiced Gin is a spiced expression of the London Dry Gin which has a lovely warming character.  

It has been distilled with 10 carefully botanicals including juniper, angelica root, nutmeg, cassia, cloves, cumin, ginger, grains of paradise, coriander seed and cinnamon. Bottled at 42.7% ABV as this is the exact point the spices make the gin taste its best.

The name comes from the moment in 1565 that Mary Queen of Scots first spies her future husband, Lord Darnley, through the courtyard window of Weymss Castle.

Tasting Notes

Darnley’s Spiced Gin has a dry, spicy nose with the familiar juniper and citrus notes subsiding to the spicier botanicals to give a warm feeling all over. Spices build on the palate before a dry, lingering finish.

The perfect serve

The spiced gin is perfect when served with ginger ale and a slice of orange. It also adds a new layer of complexity to a Negroni or as the base of a Hot Gin Punch with ginger beer and cloudy apple juice.
