THE BOTANIST THE FIRST AND ONLY ISLAY DRY GIN

CRAFTED WITH 22 WILD NATIVE ISLAY BOTANICALS, HAND-PICKED BY OUR EXPERT FORAGING TEAM FROM THE WINDSWEPT HILLS, PEAT BOGS AND ATLANTIC SHORES OF THIS HEBRIDEAN ISLAND OF ISLAY, AND DISTILLED IN THE UNIQUE AND FABULOUS, "UGLY BETTY"

BOTANICALS ARE THE VERY ESSENCE OF GIN, IT'S REASON FOR BEING.

COLOUR QUICKSILVER.

BODY THE SPIRIT IS SATIN SMOOTH GLIDING OVER THE PALATE LIKE NO GIN YOU HAVE EVER TRIED BEFORE. A TOTALLY SEDUCTIVE EXPERIENCE.

NOSE THE AROMAS EXPLODE LIKE AN OLFACTORY AURORA BOREALIS FILLING THE SENSES WITH METEORITES OF SMELL SENSATIONS AS THEY 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. IT’S A MAGICAL MELODY OF ISLAY’S’ NATURAL BOUNTY FROM THE ATLANTIC WASHED BEACHES TO THE SUMMIT OF HEATHER COVERED HILLS. INHALE AND YOU’RE THERE ON THE QUEEN OF THE HEBRIDES!

PALATE 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.

FINISH ALL THIS FROM A BEATEN UP OLD POT STILL, OPERATED BY BEATEN UP DISTILLERS ON THE COAST OF HEAVEN.

MOOD CAREFREE. THE ELECTRIC BUZZ OF ILLICIT ANTICIPATION.
