The Botanist Islay Dry Gin is a versatile dry gin that is crafted using a unique combination of 22 botanicals that are hand-foraged locally and sustainably on the Scottish island of Islay. These 22 hand-foraged local botanicals delicately augment nine berries, barks, seeds, and peels during an achingly slow distillation. These botanicals are picked at varying times of the year, and can only be picked when it's dry—a frequent challenge on Islay! Our dedicated Scottish foragers then carefully and meticulously dry all of the botanicals in order to be infused during our slow, simmer distillation process. The Botanist Islay Gin is first, and only Islay Dry Gin is a rare expression of the heart and soul of our remote Scottish island home. This incredible attention to detail is to ensure we give our artisanal spirit the best chance it can to embody a unique flavor profile that yields a gin that is both beautifully complex and elegantly smooth. The taste is rich and mellow, featuring sweet, delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper, coriander with aniseed undertones, lemon, and orange peel, a bouquet of summer flowers, honey from thistle, coconut from gorse, wild mint and summer meadows. This botanical breath of Islay is captured in a stunning glass bottle that features the 22 hand-picked botanicals etched in Latin and is best served neat, in a classic Botanist & Tonic, or as a perfectly chilled martini. Enjoy!
