CT Gin captures the spirit of Highclere Castle from ‘Downton Abbey’
With over a decade in the spirits industry, Connecticut’s Adam von Gootkin was looking to do a little something different in 2019. The idea came to him one night while watching the hit series “Downton Abbey ” with his wife, at his request.
“I was inspired by the show. I was looking to create a brand that had a level of history, heritage and pedigree. My wife told me to watch the show and I finally did. , and I was like, ‘There it is.’ So I called the Count and Countess who live in the castle.” Easy, right? And, so, Highclere Castle Gin was in the works.
