The Botanist is the first and only Islay dry gin available at this time. In addition to the nine classic gin botanicals, it uses 22 local herbs and flowers foraged responsibly and by hand from the hills, shores and bogs by their team of botanical scientists. This fascinating seasonal cocktail is then slow "simmer" distilled for seventeen hours in their unique Lomond pot-still at low-pressure, so that the botanicals are gently coaxed into releasing their complex, signature aromatics.
The Botanist is a highly distinctive, complex, floral gin with vivid nose of sweet delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper and coriander with orange peel, wild mint and aniseed undertones. The palate is rich and mellow, with refreshing notes of citrus fruit, which leads to well integrated notes of juniper, summer flowers, honey and summer meadows. Hints of coconut and wild mint linger through the long, structured finish.
