Legacy and Future of a Great Castle

EP SUPPORTING INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURS 

Gordon Castle


In the heart of whisky country and nestled in the Spey valley sits Gordon Castle. A beautiful and historic building making modern headway. Built in the 1770s, the Scottish estate has been owned by Angus and Zara Gordon since 2008. Direct descendants of the Dukes of Gordon, they have been restoring the Castle bringing it into the 21st century and working on some very special projects.

The traditional activities of farming, accommodation and fishing were not enough to sustain the historically significant property and so the owners diversified. Today, Gordon Castle has its own Gordon Castle Gin plus a luxury bath and beauty range, tweed and bone china – all inspired by their Walled Garden.

The regeneration of one of Scotland's oldest walled gardens

The derelict former raspberry garden has been transformed and now everything grown in it has a purpose, whether grown for their range of luxurious lifestyle products, for the onsite cafe or to sell in the potting shed.

Gordon Castle Gin

Lovingly rafted from botanicals grown in the Scottish Highlands, Gordon Castle Gin is made with the help of the gardening team patiently tending and hand picking to ensure each sprig is perfect.

The Gordon Family

Built by the Duke of Gordon as the spiritual home of the House of Gordon, one of Scotland's oldest families, the castle was even used during the First World War as an auxiliary hospital for soldiers.

Modern Sporting Estate

The Estate today offers exclusive use accommodation in the Castle, self-catering holiday cottages, fishing and Highland Games.

This extraordinary estate has diversified to ensure future success. Whether award wining handcrafted gin or products built on history and provenance, Gordon Castle has an exciting future to look forward to.
