Family-owned firm launches the very first Scottish Dry gin
Using scientific understanding of flavour compounds, Dumfries and Galloway distiller launched the very first Scottish Dry gin.
The Dalton-based, Oro Distilling Company, has debuted a small batch of dry gin made with a unique blend of plants and flowers, distilled over 15 to 17 hours in a purpose-built, fully coppered still.
Oro Gin is distilled with 15 botanicals, with juniper, vanilla and coriander which stands out, as well as cinnamon, pink peppercorns, and a secret ingredient.
The gin was developed by head distiller Ray Clynick, a graduate of the Heriot-Watt International Centre for Brewing & Distilling, and creative director Jacqueline Clynick, along with their team of experts in science, chemistry and distilling.
“Specific scientific research has been applied to Oro at every turn; from the dilution point and solvent extraction method through to the particular type of still used,” said Clynick.
