As with Old Raj Red, Old Raj Blue is distinctive in that it contains a measure of saffron, the rare (and costly) spice of the crocus. This imparts a spicy flavour and pale yellow colour. It is the strongest Scottish gin and has powerful alcohol on the nose, with juniper and coriander notes coming through. The taste is spicy with heavy citrus. The flavour is fuller than Old Raj Red, but there is a touch of burn on the tongue from the high ABV.
