Proof66 Notes

More frequently known for scotch whisky, Duncan Taylor produced a flavored, saffron-infused gin known as Indian Summer gin. It is bottled at a cocktail-worthy 92 proof and&msash;as proudly proclaimed by the label—employs the spice of saffron. Other botanicals include angelica, almond, coriander, cassia, lemon, liquorice, orris, and orange... the added botanical of saffron softens the juniper to the point where it is considered a "flavored" gin rather than the juniper-forward classic gin but wouldn't be flavored in the sense of, say, a flavored vodka with sugar and lemon essence. They suggest it is the "soul of summer."

The Indian Summer gin was named Best Flavored Gin in the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (in a field of 32 flavored gins).

Duncan Taylor is not actually a distillery but a bottling company. These companies have a distinguished history in Scotland where buying and blending different lots of malt whiskies is considered an honorable art. Duncan Taylor as a company began in Huntley, Aberdeenshire in 1938. Once working in bulk distribution they moved to market their own brands in 2002.
