Stoli Group, the leading global ultra-premium spirits and wine company, announced the official global launch of their super-premium gin from Scotland. Taking its name from Tulchan Estate in Scotland, Tulchan Gin™ is a small batch gin distilled in Speyside, with flavors inspired by the terroir of the Estate located on the banks of the River Spey.
“We are delighted to bring a slice of our wondrous estate to your glass,” commented Damian McKinney, CEO of Stoli Group, in making the announcement. “Distilled in Speyside, in the heart of whisky country, we’re looking forward to introducing Tulchan Gin to whisky drinkers as well as gin lovers throughout the world.”
Born on one of the most admired estates in Scotland, Tulchan Gin™ is inspired by its natural surroundings with botanicals including sloe berries, elderflower and blackberry leaves which are found on the Tulchan Estate. One unusual botanical is asparagus, which provides the gin with a bitter edge and unusually long finish. The distillation takes place in Speyside using the Estate’s recipe.
Tulchan Gin™ is presented in a luxury embossed blue glass bottle with the official Tulchan estate tartan running down the side, reflecting the gin’s Scottish heritage. The label on the front of the bottle includes an illustration of the Estate mascot The Grouse Piper playing the bagpipes and the wooden cork stopper has a Scottish thistle stamp. Tulchan Gin™ is a full bodied, juniper forward London Dry gin elevated with the Scottish botanicals that shine through
Tulchan Gin™ is part of the Stoli Group portfolio of spirits brands and is distributed in the UK by Indie Brands, part of Amber Beverage Group and distributed globally through the Stoli Group. Tom Jones, Ultra Premium Spirits Ambassador, will be working with trade accounts and retailers to support the launch of the brand in the UK and around the world. Tom is based in Scotland and is a regular visitor to Tulchan Estate.
