Colonsay Wild Island Botanic Gin (1x70cl)

Wild Island Botanic Gin is a celebration of the beauty and unique character of our island home, the Isle of Colonsay. They set out to create a truly exceptional spirit crafted around the native botanicals that grow on the crofts in the Southern Hebrides off Scotland’s West coast.

Crafted in a century old copper still at Langley Distillery, using 100% British Wheat infused with six native hand foraged botanicals growing wild on the island and a further ten as the base. Wild Island Botanic Gin is bottled in Scotland at 43.7% abv using pure Scottish water.

The six native plants which they hand gather on Colonsay in Spring and Summer are: lemon balm, wild water mint, meadowsweet, sea buckthorn, heather flowers and bog myrtle. These provide the heart and soul of Wild Island Botanic Gin. The British wheat that they use, along with a base of ten other botanicals, led by juniper berries along with coriander seeds, sweet Mediterranean lemon peel, orange peel, liquorice, cinnamon bark, angelica root, orris root, cassia bark and nutmeg, provide body and depth to the gin.

This is a truly unique premium gin of the very highest quality.

A cocktail to try with Wild Island Gin is a 'Southside'. Created in Prohibition-era US and named after the notorious 'Southside' district of Chicago, this cocktail is uncomplicated and delicious and was reputed to be a favourite of Al Capone.

25ml lime juice

20ml sugar syrup

8 mint leaves

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with plenty of ice, shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Double strain into a chilled Champagne flute and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Colonsay Wild Island Sacred Tree Gin (1x 70cl)

Wild Island Botanic Gin is a celebration of the beauty and unique character of our island home, the Isle of Colonsay. They set out to create a truly exceptional spirit crafted around the native botanicals that grow on the crofts in the Southern Hebrides off Scotland’s West coast.

Crafted in a century old copper still at Langley Distillery, using 100% British Wheat infused with six native hand foraged botanicals growing wild on the island and a further ten as the base. Wild Island Botanic Gin is bottled in Scotland at 43.7% abv using pure Scottish water.

Wild Island ‘Sacred Tree’ Gin uses an array of carefully selected Autumn fruits, including brambles hand gathered on the island, added to a composition totalling 22 individual botanicals to create an incredibly complex, ripe fruit, spicy-sweet contemporary London Dry style gin. The ancient Scots observed a ‘sacred tree’ calendar of which the bramble vine was one representing the month of September. It was during the month of September that the fruits were gathered and it is the bramble to which the distillers are giving prominence due to its predominant character.

The perfect way to serve Sacred Tree gin is:

1 part Wild Island Sacred Tree Gin
2 parts good quality tonic water (try Elderflower tonic for a twist on the original)
1 slice of ripe red apple
A scattering of black berries
Fresh cubed ice

Fill a highball glass with ice and pour in the gin. Top up with the tonic water, drop in the slice of apple and garnish with the berries. Gently stir and serve.

Crossbill Small Batch Highland Gin - Scotland (1x 70cl)

Crossbill Gin is a celebration of juniper and rosehip, two bold and fresh Highland botanicals. Made using only 100% Scottish hand picked botanicals, they have re-established a long lost tradition of harvesting Scottish juniper. This creates a distinct taste evocative of the ancient pine forests where juniper has grown for centuries. 

In the 18th century Scotland’s fragrant juniper was exported to Holland to produce Jenever (gin's great, great grandfather). This tradition died out 200 years ago but Crossbill’s founder Jonathan was captivated by the idea of reviving Scottish juniper harvesting to produce a new gin.

Kintyre Gin - Scotland (1x 70cl)

Beinn an Tuirc Distillery occupies a former piggery building located on Torrisdale Castle Estate in Kintyre, Scotland. The estate comprises around 1,200 acres of hill, forest and farm land and boasts magnificent views over the Kilbrannan Sound to the Isle of Arran. Kintyre Gin is made at Beinn an Tuirc Distillery. It is the latest brain-child of laird, Niall Macalister Hall who refuses to rest on his laurels and continues to come up with innovative ways to diversify the estate.

The small copper pot still was imported from Germany and has a fill capacity of only 230 litres, resulting in a truly hand crafted gin. The still is run on electricity supplied directly to them from their own hydro-electric  scheme. Their fine looking still is named Big Don, a nod to Niall and Kenny’s father who sadly passed away during the initial stages of the distillery’s development. A keen gin drinker, and luckily for us, someone with a great sense of humour, Donald will be watching on with interest!

They use 12 botanicals in Kintyre Gin, which have all been sustainably sourced. To achieve the characteristics of a very flavoursome and well-balanced spirit, the gin consists of 10 commonly used botanicals, with the addition of 2 which are unique, namely Icelandic moss and sheep sorrel - both grow on the estate in abundance. Either through maceration or vapour infusion, these produce a gin which is has earthy and spicy characteristics, being deep in flavour, with a very pleasant floral aroma.

Martin Miller's Gin - England / Iceland (1x 70cl)

Martin Miller and his two friends, appalled by the lack of quality of gin and wanting to encourage a younger group of consumers into the gin fold, set off on a quest for the best gin possible, sparing no expense. To achieve this, juniper needed to be tamed, without compromising the traditional character of gin. Launching in 1999, Martin Miller’s Gin became the first modern-day high quality gin brand, thus setting off the gin renaissance.

Martin Miller was a strange mix. At heart a traditionalist yet, at the same time, possessed of a strong appetite for adventure combined with an illogical and irrepressible love of the Romantic. In creating his gin, the traditionalist in him demanded he make a gin that ‘tasted of gin’ and not, in his words, ‘of some highly flavoured confection’. To this end he insisted on only employing the methods and techniques of the ‘old school’ gin makers; sticking rigidly to their tried and tested methods and their classic range of botanicals.

Martin Miller's Original Gin, is pot distilled using two separate distillations. This imparts a unique balance of citrus and juniper. It is blended to a bottling strength of 40% ABV using Icelandic Spring Water. It is the perfect gin for martinis and gin and tonics.

Masons Original Dry Yorkshire Gin - England (1x 70cl)

Persie Herby & Aromatic Gin - Scotland (1x 50cl)

Persie Gin is the brainchild of the man behind the world’s first touring gin club, Simon Fairclough. Travelling up and down the country with a carload of over 150 gins, he was able to see first-hand which gin style scored top marks most often. But there wasn’t just one: there were three. Very quickly it became clear to Simon that three styles proved consistently most popular by a wide margin – fruity gins, savoury gins and slightly sweeter gins. So up front, he knew that Persie Gin needed to consist of a family of three expressions, so there would be something for everyone.

Secondly, top-scoring gin had more than a nice taste: it had aroma. With over 75% of flavour down to smell, aroma is the single biggest influence among tasters for liking each gin. So you could say he followed his nose. The result is Persie Gin: three distinct styles of aromatic gin created and distilled in the former Persie Hotel at the foot of Glenshee in Perthshire.

Hand-made in small batches in a bespoke, 230-litre copper pot still, the gin is distilled with pure glen water from the local hills. Each gin uses carefully chosen botanicals to evoke an emotive and comforting scent.

The Persie Herby & Aromatic gin has the aromas and flavours of fragrant herb gardens with bay trees, rosemary and basil. With Persie Gins engaging the nose first, this makes them perfect for a tonic mixer as the quinine doesn’t overwhelm it. If you are sensitive to the profile on the nose, you won’t even need garnish.

Pickering's 1947 (1x 75cl)

When Pickering's opened Summerhall Distillery, it was the first exclusive gin distillery to be established in Edinburgh for over 150 years. Their gin is based on an original 1947 recipe. It features nine Bombay botanicals, engineered by us to create Pickering’s famous full-bodied flavour with perfect bitter-sweet balance.

Believe it or not, Pickering's gin only came into being in 2013.  Before that, Matt and Marcus (the founders) had been friends and business partners for years, with backgrounds in engineering, furniture restoration and property renovation. They were working at Summerhall when they spotted the derelict dogs kennels from the small animal hospital that once stood in the middle of the old Royal (Dick) Veterinary School. What to do with it? As fate would have it, Marcus had recently inherited a gin recipe from a friend of his late father. Hmmm… The next step seemed obvious. They built the distillery then, despite having no background in distilling, kept trying, testing and experimenting until they succeeded. 

This is a spicy and sweet, authentic Bombay style gin. This edition is made precisely to their original recipe, as it was written down in Bombay, 1947. The cinnamon used in this version gives the gin a decidedly spicy kick. The nine botanicals used are are juniper, coriander, cardamom, fennel, anise, lemon, lime, cloves and cinnamon (in place of the angelica used in regular Pickering's).

With over 60 years combined experience in the drinks industry and a wealth of knowledge in gin distillation, they set out to write a new chapter in this famous spirit's history.

Loved by gin drinkers and non-gin drinkers alike, it now has countless awards to its name. It is certainly a gin of note.

The more traditional notes of gin are combined with a refreshing influence of citrus and aromatic wild berries. Bulgarian coriander plays its part, providing an aromatic, gingery orange top note. This blends perfectly with the soft and rounded harmonies of blueberries and blackberries, all of which is supported by the bottom note of Tuscan juniper berries. Dry, bittersweet Valencian orange peel elongates the deeper tones and gives an intensely smooth finish.

Thereafter, Brockmans is slowly distilled in a 100 year old traditional copper still, where they capture the heart of the gin distillation. The distinctive gin notes derived from Brockmans unique recipe deliver an exquisite intensely smooth gin, with a uniquely defining sensual taste experience.
