OLD RAJ 92 PROOF GIN (750 ML)
Cadenheadʼs Old Raj Gin is distinctive in that it contains a measure of saffron, the rare and costly spice derived from the crocus flower. In addition to a slightly spicy flavour, this also imparts a pale yellow colour to the Old Raj. The addition of the saffron is undertaken personally by the company chairman, in order to ensure a consistency in flavour and colour each time Old Raj is bottled.The gin is produced by compounding a gin flavour (essence) with a neutral Scottish grain spirit. Old Raj is bottled at two strengths, 46% ABV and 55%ABV. This represents a further departure from standard gin bottling’s which are generally bottled at 40% ABV or less. Old Raj is a quality-orientated product targeted at the knowledgeable spirits consumer.
