Product Description

Tired of using average run-of-the-mill gins for your cocktails? Then it’s time to get a bottle of Botanist Islay Dry Gin and give your mixes an artisanal touch.

Founded in 1881 on the Isle of Islay, the Bruichladdich Distillery has primarily been producing single malt Scotch for its century-long existence. However in 2011, the distillery ventured into unknown territory with the decision to craft their very own artisanal gin. Simply known as The Botanist, this new label takes advantage of the natural bounty of botanicals on Islay to create a truly one-of-a-kind gin that drinkers can enjoy to their heart’s content.

Named in honor of the two botanists who literally hand-picked the blend of botanicals used to flavor it, the Botanist Islay Dry Gin begins with a neutral grain spirit which is first infused with 9 classic gin botanicals via overnight maceration. The spirit is then distilled using a Lomond still named "Ugly Betty" in which the vapors are also passed through a basket of more botanicals consisting of 22 delicate Islay aromatic leaves and petals. After 17 hours of this meticulous distillation process, the gin is finally brought to proof and bottled.

With each sip, the abundance of botanicals immediately make themselves known with bursts of menthol, floral, citrus, wood, coriander, juniper, apple, and herbal notes. This paves the way for a milder but equally invigorating palate of mint, pine, juniper, fresh citrus, chamomile, vanilla, licorice, and birch, all coming together into a lengthy and fairly dry finish of spice accented by a pleasing astringency.

Packaged in a lovely bottle embossed with the names of all the botanicals used in its creation, the Botanist Islay Dry Gin serves as an encapsulation of everything good about Islay. So get yourself a bottle of this craft gin today and let it take your taste buds to a flavorful journey one sip at a time.
