22 hand-foraged local botanicals delicately augment nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during an achingly slow distillation.
This botanist islay dry gin is a rare expression of the heart and soul of our remote Scottish island home. The spirit is satin-smooth, gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before. Think sweet, delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper, coriander with aniseed undertones, lemon and orange peel, a bouquet of flowers from Machir Bay, honey from thistle, coconut from gorse, water mint and summer meadows…It’s a magical melody of Islay’s natural bounty, from the Atlantic washed beaches to the summit of heather-covered hills.
The taste is rich and mellow; cool on entry then as it reaches the back palate, you can feel the warmth of slow unhurried distillation. This is a bewitching, delectable and luxurious gin; its citrus freshness excites and stimulates the senses.
