Speyside welcomes new visitors this month as the Red Door Gin experience opens its doors creating the region’s first single site whisky and gin visitor attraction.
The new visitor attraction will give gin fans the chance to learn the story of Red Door Gin, from the history of the distillery to the secrets of how the distillers create each handcrafted batch of Highland gin.
Housed behind the distillery’s iconic red door, the one hour tour will bring the distillation process to life while introducing guests to “Peggy” – the small copper pot still where every batch of Red Door Gin is carefully handmade by the on-site team.
After learning about botanicals and distillation, visitors can make their way to the Red Door Gin bar to sample the perfect Red Door G&T or signature cocktail.
Lizzie Haw, Red Door Gin’s flavour expert, said: “We’re immensely proud of our handcrafted Highland gin and are thrilled to – literally – throw open the door and give gin fans the chance to see the distillery in action, while sampling the best we have to offer”.
The launch of the Red Door Gin experience makes this historic Forres distillery the only place in Speyside to offer gin and whisky visitor attractions at one site.
The Red Door Gin Visitor Experience is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 9:30 am – 5 pm until October and then 10 am – 16:00 pm Monday to Friday from November during the winter season. With only eight places per tour, guests are encouraged to book early in advance by calling 01309 675 968. Tickets are £10 per person including a signature Red Door G&T. Over 18s only.
