Old Raj gin has been produced for us since 1972 and is available at 46% and 55% abv. Bottling takes place in Campbeltown. This quality floral gin has a slight yellow tint due to the addition of the saffron. This valuable and rare ingredient is added post distillation.
All of the botanicals are distilled with the base spirit except saffron, which is infused with gin following distillation because of its delicacy. This gin product is bottled at 46% ABV and is sometimes referred to as Old Raj 'Red Label' to differentiate from its higher-ABV counterpart (which uses a blue label).
"Moderately intense, the aroma focuses on the juniper and cinnamon. A very gentle floral note hovers throughout the gin. The finish is warming and focuses on the cinnamon and citrus peel, particularly orange. A gin for traditionalists -- advise on usage is any cocktail really, but gin and tonics and other long drinks would be a great start. We'd use its Blue Label brethren for a Martini." - Stephanie Moreno, Distiller
