One of Scotland's newest micro-distilleries, Kinrara distillery was set up by Stuart McMillan and is nestled amongst the 12,000 acres of the Cairngorm National Park. Inspired by the centuries old Cairngorm estate founded by Lady Gordon, known as the 'Empress of Fashion', who was born during the notorious gin craze of the 18th century and held lavish parties on the estate.
Their gin is distilled in a 100 litre still, which is direct-fired, paying homage to the origins of distillation by the Moors in the 12th century.
Their plans for hand-crafted Highland whiskies are going to take a few years but they're planning to launch their own signature single malt, distilled and matured on the estate. While they’re (and we're) waiting, they promise us they've got a few tricks up their sleeve (including a blended malt launching in the not too distant future - we hope!)
