No. 209 Gin's beautifully aromatic nose of citrus, floral notes and a hint of spiciness makes it perfect for mixing in cocktails of all types. Assertive enough to stand alone in a bone dry martini but a far cry from the overwhelming, juniper-heavy gins of the past, No. 209 is all about balance.
A gin truly from the Isle of Jura: not only are the 15 botanicals foraged there, but it is – unusually for island gins – distilled there too. It's a gin produced by a trio of wild ladies on a truly wild island. if the term “full bodied”
can be applied to a gin, it applies to Lussa. Jura honeysuckle, rose petals, ground elder, water mint, ground elderflower, lime flowers, rosehips, lemon balm, orris, sea lettuce and coriander are all used in the gin, along with spring water from the nearby Lussa glen. Round, warm, fruited, citrussy and a wee bitty spicy: this is a real “boutique gin”.
