Aim for the moon and you can reach the stars!

Everyone at Redcastle HQ is absolutely thrilled with the news that our amazing Spiced Rum has been awarded 2 stars as part of the Great Taste awards 2019.

It is a blend of our own Angus distilled rum with 3 year old cask aged Jamaican rum,  which results in a heavenly and indulgent spiced rum, with notes of vanilla and citrus. 

We may be biased but we think it is amazing and we are sure if you are a rum fan you will love it too!

You have got to be in it to win it!

 The nominees have been announced for the Scottish Gin Awards 2019 and we are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the following awards:

  • Gin Liqueur of the Year - 3 of our liqueurs have made the final 
  • London Dry Gin of the Year
  • Growth Business of the Year     

We at Redcastle are really pleased to see some of our fellow Angus based producers nominated too, great to have our region so well represented.
Fiona Walsh, co-director, commented that "being shortlisted for such prestigious awards is a great bonus for Redcastle and is testament to all the hard work done by team Redcastle. However, we need to give a big thank you to all those customers who enjoy our products and help us to be who we are!"
We cant wait for the awards!

Over the Moon!

We are absolutely over the moon at Redcastle HQ!

The results of the 2019 Scottish Gin Society online survey of Scottish Gin lovers has revealed that Redcastle Gin has come in 3rd Place!

Having been delighted with 7th place last year, we are absolutely bowled over with this years result.

Fiona Walsh, Director stated "We are absolutely astounded by this result, it really underlines that we are on the right path and gives us increased momentum with all our exciting plans for the year ahead. It is amazing to be in a top 3 along side such illustrious company as Isle of Harris and Kintyre gin, and it is great to see so many newer brands in the top 20. We want to recognize and thank our wonderful customers who have supported us on our journey so far and we look forward to sharing more exciting times ahead with them!"
