The Botanist Islay Dry Gin is made from 22 hand-foraged local botanicals that delicately augment nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during an achingly slow distillation.
Wild. Foraged. Distilled.
From the Progressive Hebridean Whisky Distillery – Bruichladdich comes The Botanist – a gin of layered complexity, an exploration of the botanical heritage of the Isle of Islay.
Palate – The taste is rich and mellow; cool on entry, then as it reaches the back palate, you can feel the warmth and absolute purity of slow unhurried distillation. This is a 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.
Aroma – 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.
Finish – The spirit is satin smooth, gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before. A totally seductive experience.
Food Match – Oysters, grilled peppers, charcuterie particularly cured meats like prosciutto or salami.
Serving Suggestion – Signature serve, Dry Martini.
