The Botanist is a delicious gin made from Islay botanicals
When you think of gin-producing countries, which places come to mind? England? Spain? The Netherlands? Bet you didn?t think of Scotland! The Scottish gin industry is still somewhat up-and-coming but a few products are quickly gaining international recognition. The Botanist is produced in Islay, a small island in Scotland. Scotland has hundreds of islands and a good number of them are famous for their whiskies. The Botanist is the product of whisky company Bruichladdich and is Islay?s only gin to date.
The Botanist is made of 22 delicious ingredients, all locally collected. Bog myrtle, water mint, apple mint, thyme, wood sage, lemon balm, sweet chamomile, hawthorn, gorse, juniper, and creeping thistle are just some of the quirky ingredients which go into The Botanist. The Botanist is not made from chemicals produced in a lab; The Botanist?s various botanicals are 100% natural and are collected with the environment in mind. Many ingredients for The Botanist are foraged, thus being collected in an environmentally-friendly, sustainable way. Sustainability is at the heart of The Botanist?s philosophy, meaning you can enjoy The Botanist without worrying about what made it into its production.
The Botanist presents high floral notes, contrasting with deeper notes, provided by the berries and seeds. The Botanist is made using a Lomond Still which has been specially adapted to give The Botanist as much time as it needs. The old still was discovered in an old distillery in 2005 and was carefully brought by barge to Bruichladdich?s distillery on the island of Islay. The Botanist is distilled slowly, making sure that everything is just right and is distilled to perfection. The lyne arm transports the purest and lightest spirit vapours to the casket containing the botanicals. The spirit and botanicals blend together to eventually create a magnificent gin which would make any gin-enthusiast very happy.
