Small batch and hand-crafted, this fascinating, delicious gin uses nine classic gin botanicals, with the addition of 22 others foraged from the windswept heather hills, peat bogs and Atlantic shores of the island. Blended with skill, these elements are beautifully balanced in this fragrant and floral gin.
Conceived, distilled & hand-crafted on the Island of Islay.The Botanist is a gin of layered complexity. A progressive exploration of the botanical heritage of our Isle of Islay. 22 hand-foraged local botanicals delicately augment nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during an achingly slow distillation. This first and only Islay dry gin is a rare expression of the heart and soul of our remote Scottish island home; our philosophy and our passion. Tasting Notes: Body: The spirit is satin smooth gliding over the plate like on gin you have ever tried before. A totally seductive experience. Nose: The aromas explode like an olfactory aurora borealis, filling the senses with meteorites of smell sensations as they explode from the glass. Sweet delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper, coriander with aniseed undertones, lemon and orange peel, a bouquet of summer flowers on the machir, honey from thistle, coconut from gorse, wild mint and summer meadows. It's a magical melody of Islay's natural bounty from the Atlantic washed beaches to the summit of heater covered hills. Inhale and you're there on the queen of the Hebrides! Palate: The taste is rich and mellow; cool on entry then as it reaches the black palate you can feel the warmth and absolute purity of slow unhurried distillation. This is a bewitching, delectable and luxurious gin; its citrus freshness excites and stimulates the taste buds allowing you to experience a star-burst of flavours as they explode across the palate.
