Code: BOTA001
An exciting and unusual gin from Islay whisky distillery Bruichladdich. The Botanist gin is made in a Lomond still christened Ugly Betty and contains no fewer than 31 botanicals, of which 22 are native to the Southern Hebridean island itself. Unsurprisingly floral!

Bruichladdich Distillery

Bruichladdich Distillery was built in 1881 by the Harvey brothers. The Harveys are a dynastic whisky family with over a century of distillery ownership including Glasgow’s Yoker and Dundas Hill Distilleries. The three brothers decided to combine their expertise to build a third Harvey Distillery: Bruichladdich.
The aromas 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. 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 bewitching, delectable and luxurious gin; its citrus freshness excites and stimulates the taste buds allowing you to experience a starburst of flavours as they explode across the palate.
To be enjoyed neat. However it’s versatile and can stand up to tonic as well as making a deliciously floral martini.
