Made by Dunnet Bay Distillers all the way up in North Scotland, this wonderfully floral gin gets its name from the Rhodiola Rosea, or rock rose, which the Vikings used to harvest because it was thought to give them the extra strength to continue on their long arduous journeys. Other locally foraged botanicals in the gin include rowan berries, sea buckthorn, blueberries, and verbena. This Autumn Edition of the gin has 5 additional botanicals; blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, Vietnamese coriander and nasturtium flowers. A warming gin with with a sweet berry nose, then a spicier palate and fruity notes. Earthy finish from the in-house grown coriander.Â We would recommend East Imperial Burma Tonic, garnished with Basil for a great G&T.
