Downpour Gin Goes Cloudy When Mixed With Tonic Water and Here’s Why


Crafted to “capture the spirit of Hebridean Island life”, Downpour is the first release from North Uist Distillery, which is located on the north west of the island.

Distilled in the beautiful Island of North Uist this gin is directly distilled from nature and delivered to your home.

This special Scottish gin is bursting with botanicals, drenching you in big bold flavours which you can taste in every drop. Citrus, spice and a punch of wild Hebridean heather are to name a few.

For the perfect serve pour this over ice with a premium tonic and then add a citrus twist as garnish. Feel free to add a fresh sprig of Rosemary as well.

This tipple is said to be clear in the bottle, but cloudy in the glass. Downpour Gin bursts into life with a splash of tonic, releasing essential oils from specially selected botanicals, drenching you in island flavour.

Jonny Ingledew, head distiller said: “Downpour has a bold flavour and packs a delicious punch – all of the flavour from the essential oils, we use, including the resulting flavour cloud, has been retained.”

“Downpour is the first spirit we have produced as North Uist Distillery. We are currently distilling from a small set up on North Uist, but our sights are firmly set on expanding and we hope to reveal our ambitious plans very soon. Downpour is just the beginning of our journey”.

If you’d like to purchase a bottle, Downpour will be priced at £38 per bottle and retailed from the North Uist Distillery website.
