About this deal

This is a well-made gin with fine attention to detail. The Botanist Gin is more than just a gin with a huge amount of botanicals; it’s a well crafted and constructed gin that showcases the power of teamwork. Cool mint and juniper, slightly pine-forward juniper at first. Citrus, primarily lemon zest on the early mid-palate before sweet spices and flower come through. Woodruff, chamomile and herbs de provence. Warm juniper late with echoes of vanilla cream, licorice and birch bark. Fairly long, fairly dry finish with a gentle, pleasing astringency. The Botanist Gin is certainly evidence that the Hebridean Islands are about more than just Scotch. Well balanced, but sufficiently complex; The Botanist Gin may be the floral/herbal gin most well suited to entice the classic gin aficionado a bit step ever so slightly outside of their comfort zone.

Find your next bottle of The Botanist gin here at House of Malt. This dry gin from the Isle of Islay uses 22 hand foraged botanicals to create a smooth yet complex spirit that offers its drinkers a taste of the wild. Perfect with a crisp tonic and a handful of ice, or shake it up with top shelf vermouth for a classic dry martini.

In 2011, what the Bruichladdich distillery was still rather unusual. Foraged botanicals are commonplace in gins that make a statement of place. Of the massive 31 botanicals in The Botanist, a full twenty-two of them are locally foraged and they range from the quotidian (spearmint) to the hardy, weedy, and unusual in gin (yellow bedstraw).

Med hele 22 forskellige botanicals, er The botanist Islay Dry Gin nok den gin vi har set, med Aller flest botanicals. Alle botanicals er håndplukkede og findes på den Skotske ø Islay. The Botanist Gin er en fantastisk flot og klar gin, og glat som satin, når den glider ned i ganen. Fyldig, blød og kølig ved første indtryk men varmer derefter ganen og stimulere smagsløgene med en dejlig rund fornemmelse af citrus. Hver slurk afslører dybere lag og mere komplekse kombinationer af den delikate smag.Dispel the notion that an excess of botanicals means you can’t have a classic gin nose: plenty of juniper, lemon and orange zest mingling with meadowsweet and woodruff. Nordvest for Skotland ligger de hebridiske øer. Og på den største af dem Islay, produceres og destilleres The Botanist Islay Gin. Islay er kendt som ´Hebridernes Dronning´ på grund af dens frugtbare land. Øen er både grønnere og fladere end mange af de andre hebridiske øer. Islays mangfoldige landskab skyldes dets underliggende geologiske struktur. Det lavereliggende frugtbare land er underlagt kalksten og glimmerskifer , mens hårde kvartsitter danner det barske højland. Although distilled at a distillery better known for Scotch (Bruichladdich) and in a region of the world better known for Scotch (the Southern reaches of the Hebridean islands), The Botanist Gin is no Islay Scotch.

Yellow Bedstraw in a gin? This one is interesting for many reasons. Firstly, another plant that goes by the name of Bedstraw is more common in gin. The sweet woodruff or just plain woodruff is sometimes called bedstraw and is a not-too-unusual flavoring ingredient. Yellow bedstraw, or as The Botanist Gin team calls it “Lady’s Bedstraw” is a yellow plant that was once used as bedding and has a distinctive Tonka-Bean like aroma of fresh, creamy hay. Unusual in culinary applications, it has traditional uses as a dye and in Nordic spirits. Most of the world knows it as a weed due to its hardy and opportune ability to colonize sprawling and disturbed grasslands. Tasting Notes
