The Royal Highland Show has partnered with craft distillers Avva Scottish Gin to create a special limited-edition gin celebrating 200 years since the very first Show took place.
The gin contains botanicals from the eight regions where the Show traditionally visited every year, before it settled at its current Ingliston showground in 1960.
The bespoke recipe of 12 botanicals includes dandelion, mint, nettle, red clover and honey that have been sourced from the 8 regions. These are combined with traditional botanicals including juniper, citrus peels, angelica root and a few secret ingredients to create a classic juniper-forward Scottish gin.
The bottle artwork features beautiful archive paintings of historic Highland Show winners – a Leicester tup, painted by Mr John Sheriff c.1844, plus a Clydesdale stallion c.1866 and a polled Angus c.1843, both painted by Mr Gourley Steel R.S.A. All three paintings are proudly displayed in Ingliston House, headquarters of RHS organisers the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS).
