The Badachro Distillery is located in the remote and beautiful hamlet of Badachro, near Gairloch in the Highlands of Scotland. One of the last true wilderness areas in Europe, with pitch dark night skies where the stars are at times almost blindingly bright.
With the sea to the west and north, the Torridon mountains to the east, Loch Torridon to the south, the distillery is surrounded with an abundance of fresh water and natural botanicals. It’s from these magical surroundings that the owners of Badachro Distillery found their inspiration to create a gin named after the place they love and call home.
Lovingly produced overlooking Badachro Bay. The label reflects the purity of the land, mountains and water around Badachro, the clarity of the sky and the copper of the still, Delilah. Using botanicals that grow within sight of the distillery, water that falls through the pure, unpolluted air above and the highland tradition of distilling, Badachro Gin is born from the delight and wonder of the surrounding landscape.
