From Grass to Glass - CLC Duchally Country Estate launches new Gatehouse Gin
We reported in an article last month about Fractional Ownership, that many properties on country estates and farms are sharing the produce (such as wine or olive oil) with the owners. Well this month we are delighted to share another such story but this time the produce is everyone’s current favourite tipple – gin!
With a backdrop of spectacular mountains, glens, lochs and rivers, the luxurious CLC Duchally Country Estate is conveniently located right in the heart of Perthshire, Scotland, just a few miles from the famous Gleneagles golf course.
Brand new to its guest experience is a fresh new partnership with Strathearn Distillery. CLC Duchally Country Estate is the first in CLC World’s portfolio to open a distillery and produce its own beverage.
The still, or distillery, is located at the Gatehouse, where it is creating a unique experience for guests, who can design and distil their very own bottles of gin, or simply enjoy summer tastings in the botanicals garden.
Graeme MacDonald, General Manager at CLC Duchally Country Estate commented: “We were delighted to partner with Strathearn Distillery, whose expertise has produced Gatehouse Gin. The result is a sweet and refreshing hit to the palette, thanks to the signature ingredients of red sweet apples and gooseberries.”
To ensure the ingredients of this Scottish gin remain home-grown, a small botanical garden of apple trees, juniper and gooseberry bushes has been planted on the CLC Duchally Country Estate, with more botanicals, plum and apple orchards to follow.
Gatehouse Gin will be available for purchase on the resort in 50cl and miniature 10cl bottles.
CLC World Resorts & Hotels is a member of the RDO. More details can be found here.
