This Islay Dry Gin contains 22 hand-foraged local botanicals which delicately augment nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during an achingly slow distillation. 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 islays’ 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!

All this (and more) from a beaten up old Pot Still, operated by beaten up distillers on the coast of Heaven – Islay.
