The Torridon Gin Garden is now open

We speak to head gardener Tom about The Torridon's new gin garden

August has been a particularly wet and windy month this year with the occasional break of sunshine. The heatwave that has touched the south of the country seems to have forgot about the north-west of Scotland. The days are shortening and with the cloud cover real sunshine has been in short supply.

I have been keeping busy completing our Gin garden which I’m happy to say is now open to the public! To complete the kitchen garden we built a star shaped pool and pergola and planted all the botanicals used to create The Torridon’s gin, Arcturus.

The kitchen garden continues to provide a healthy yield of fruit and vegetables to be served up in the 1887 restaurant. For a consecutive year the fruit seems to have done particularly well; the apples, red-currants and gooseberries have all benefited from the early spring heat. The tomatoes in the greenhouse continue to ripen and the grapes in the polytunnel are already being picked! I continue to grow seeds in the greenhouse for a range of brassicas and lettuce which will be grown over winter- which is just around the corner…
