Islay, the Hebridean home of The Botanist clings to the edge of the ocean in the teeth of Atlantic weather systems. The team at Bruichladdich (who make The Botanist) have the following ethos that they share. "We believe our spirits should have character; and authenticity derived from where they are distilled and the philosophies of those who distil them."
The Botanist is a gin of layered complexity and is the result of a progressive exploration of the botanical heritage of the Isle of Islay. 22 hand foraged local botanicals including creeping thistle, lemon balm, red clover and wood sage delicately augment nine different berries barks, seeds and peels during a long, slow distillation. This gin is a true expression of the nature of Islay.
The spirit is satin smooth gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before. A totally seductive experience. 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.
