GoodWill Gin is a Highland craft gin made from nine premier botanicals, including exotic fruits and locally picked Hawthorn berries. The carefully measured juniper content makes for a smooth taste experience whilst remaining full-bodied.

There is a distinct refreshing citrus burst that stays from the first nosing right through the taste to the long and complex finish. Finally, the finish delivers a delicately spiced sensation to warm the palate. Savour it, live in the now, and share the moments that matter.

Tasting Notes

  • On the Nose

    Reminiscence of forest walks as the scent – guided by the Juniper – leads you through an alpine forest. Fresh blooms can be sensed as the floral bouquet prolongs the forest feel. The aromas of Mediterranean orange groves and freshly prepared lemon zest are never far away.

  • In the Mouth

    Clean, crisp citrus fruits is at first refreshing, and then gives way to a deeper complexity. It is now that the rich spice of orris root, coriander and cinnamon come through in the full, whilst smooth creamy almond helps to create a fine balanced taste.

  • To Finish

    Lastly, the tongue enjoys the satisfying citrus and spice sizzle. While, at the back of the palate, there is a creamy ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ sensation to enjoy. Throughout, this complex combination remains smooth, clean, and fresh.

The Process

  • 01

    Steeping

    Nine premium botanicals including locally sourced Hawthorn are soaked in 55% ABV grain neutral spirit for 24 hours. The steeping takes place within our 400 litre gin still, which goes by the name of Heather, and this allows for GoodWill’s delicate flavours to develop.

  • 02

    Heating

    After 24 hours of steeping, the still is heated using steam. Alcohol boils at a lower temperature than water, so this allows the alcohol vapour to rise up through the 3.4 metre-high still column, across the lye pipe, and into the condenser, before running into the spirit safe.

  • 03

    Perfecting

    Some 30 litres of the foreshots, or ‘the head’, are collected before the spirit cut begins. Then, some 250 litres of the gin spirit, ‘the heart’, are collected at approximately 75% ABV. Together with the foreshots, the remaining feints, or the ‘tail’, are collected and used again in the next distillation.

  • 04

    Bottling

    Finally, by adding distilled water, our freshly made, crystal clear spirit is then reduced to 40% ABV. The delicate, yet citrus-rich GoodWill Gin is then ready to be bottled and enjoyed straight away.
