An Exclusive Brand Producing Award-Winning Gin In Scotland

11/07/2018

Supremely aromatic with a clean, crisp finish, the botanical herbs for this Scottish gin are carefully tended and grown in their very own Walled Garden in Fochabers, Moray

Gordon Castle Estate, Walled Garden and the Gordon Castle Scotland brand are the results of eight years hard work by Angus and Zara Gordon Lennox since they took over the running of Gordon Castle Estate, Fochabers in 2008. Completed as one of Scotland’s largest houses in the 1770s by the Duke of Gordon, Gordon Castle is the spiritual home of the House of Gordon, one of Scotland’s oldest families. The castle was used during the Great War as an auxiliary hospital for soldiers returning from the front and was then sold back to the Crown in 1938 following two successive deaths leaving the family with unmanageable death duties to pay. It fell into disrepair before being ‘rescued’ by war hero and much-loved soldier Lieutenant General Sir George Gordon Lennox (grandson of the 7th Duke of Richmond and Gordon) after World War Two. He was forced to knock down much of the original house due to dry and wet rot, but he and his wife began the loving restoration, which Angus Gordon Lennox (Grandson of Sir George) and his wife Zara, continue today.

Upon arrival, they decided that an estate of such historical importance and significance had to be brought into the 21st century and was in dying need of renovation. It was decided that the once traditional sporting Estate was to be transformed into a multi-faceted attraction for the community and visitors alike. In addition, the company has launched the Gordon Castle brand which encompasses Gordon Castle Gin, the luxury bath and beauty range, tweed and bone china products: all of which have been inspired by the Walled Garden.

Crafted from botanicals grown in the Scottish Highlands, Gordon Castle Gin is the brain-child of Angus and Zara Gordon Lennox; owners of the Gordon Castle Estate and direct descendants of the Dukes of Gordon. In 2008 Angus and Zara took over the running of the Estate and have since dedicated their time to transforming the traditional sporting estate into a luxury brand and visitor attraction.
