What is special about Botanist Gin?

Unlike other gins, most of the Botanist Gin ingredients are hand-foraged by two professional foragers from the island itself. After that, the botanicals are vapour distilled in a 17-hour process that only takes place 8 days a year, creating a gin that’s as rare as it’s high-quality.

What herbs are in Botanist Gin?

The Botanist Gin is made with 22 botanicals, including apple mint, chamomile, lemon balm, mead wort and Islay juniper, an endangered plant that was added symbolically to raise awareness for its conservation. Other non-local ingredients, such as angelica root and cassia bark, are also used, but the Botanist Islay Dry Gin is influenced exclusively by the island’s botanicals.

What is the best way to serve Botanist Gin?

Many gin enthusiasts say that the best way to appreciate a high-quality gin is to serve it neat. However, the best way to serve gin is ultimately up to your personal preference, so some prefer to use Botanist Gin in cocktails.

The Botanist Gin cocktails

One of the most popular cocktails is the gin and tonic, as there are a variety of toppings that can be mixed and matched to suit your tastes. For example, official The Botanist Gin recipes include a variant topped with bramble and rosemary, while a different version recommends elderflower and grapefruit. The Martini is also a good choice for gin cocktail drinkers, especially if the glassware is chilled before use.

What goes best with Botanist Gin?

The Botanist dry gin contains citrusy and floral notes that go well with salty foods such as nuts, cured meats or cheeses. The juniper in Botanist Gin is also a popular ingredient used in lamb dishes, so lamb would make an excellent main course pairing.
