Introducing Vára Orkney Craft Pink Gin


Vara Gin

Vára, meaning “become spring” in Old Norse, is a delightful pink gin that captures the essence of the season. Featuring a blend of botanicals, including juniper, tarragon, rosemary, elderflower, lemongrass, lime, red grapefruit, rose, vanilla, and cardamom, Vára offers a unique and enchanting flavor profile. The tasting notes highlight a juniper-led taste, with rosemary, citrus, and cardamom undertones, culminating in a sweet pink rose finish. The perfect serve for Vára is with ice, natural tonic water garnished with rose petals, or elderflower tonic garnished with a lime peel twist.
