Constructed by the Leven and Ore rivers, Cameronbridge is one of the largest and oldest distilleries in Scotland, now known for its great expressions of gin and whiskey. Its history is closely linked to the Haig and Stein families, famous for generating whiskey for generations. The distillery was founded in Windygates, in the Lowlands, in 1828 by John Haig, son of the same father and Margaret Stein.
In 1990 Cameronbridge expanded its production of distillates: the gin Tanqueray stands out for its quality range and prestige. Tanqueray's recipe has remained unchanged since 1830 and includes 4 major botanicals: Tuscan juniper, angelic root, coriander and liquorice, which give the gin a cool and dry style. The selection of these plant extracts is crucial for the quality of the final product. Water also plays a key role in this process: demineralized water, combined with that of an underground source, is added to the wheat distillate before infusion of botanicals, not to deteriorate vegetable extracts and to ensure integrity and finesse of aromas.
Cameronbridge gin is produced with a perfectly balanced recipe, which gives them a rich and full flavor. One amongst all the Gin Jinzu, obtained from Japanese botanicals: yuzo, cherry blossoms, sakes and juniper berries. An elegant and delicate gin that encloses all the charm of the East.
