PRODUCT TYPE: Bundle
You Save: RM63.00 (18%)
The Botanist gin is made on the the island of Islay at the Bruichladdich distillery. No this isn't a peated gin. Although that could be nice! Made using 31 botanicals of which 22 are locally foraged. A long list of botanicals, but these don’t lead to a confised gin at all. In fact is it complex and delicious. Complex and overtly floral nose with elderflower and mint being the two botanicals that really start to stand out above the crowd after a few minutes. A rich yet silky smooth gin that is a rare beast in that it is pleasant to drink neat. A citrus note from the lemon balm is prominent throughout, balanced by a smorgasbord of floral flavours from the many botanicals used. Sometimes too many ingredients can be a bad thing, but in this case the whole is truly greater than the sum of its parts. The nose is long and complex, with the botanicals slowly disappearing, one by one to leave a lovely minty freshness at the very end Pair with East Imperial Old World Tonic.
