The Botanist Islay Dry Gin is a rare expression of the heart and soul of its remote Scottish island home.
22 hand-foraged local botanicals - barks, berries, seeds and peels.
Immediately a bouquet of herbal freshness, juniper and sweet citrus come to the fore. Allow a little time to open and the sweet, spicy and earthy notes of cassia and coriander set a base for the delicate complexity of the Islay 22.
Cool on entry, then warming across the palate, stimulating the taste buds with a round mouthfeel and citrus freshness. The balance and complexity are distinctive.

Apple Mint, Chamomile, Creeping Thistle, Downy Birch, Elder, Gorse, Hawthorn, Heather, Juniper, Ladys Bedstraw, Lemon Balm, Meadowsweet, Mugwort, Red Clover, Spearmint, Sweet Cicely, Myrtle, Tansy, Water Mint, White Clover, Wild Thyme, Wood Sage.
