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, and verbena. This Winter Edition of the gin has Spruce tips as the shining botanical, with the base being pared down so the citrusy notes shine through. Fresh notes develop into strong pine and peppery notes. Clean citrus and juniper to finish. We would recommend East Imperial Burma Tonic, garnished with Apple for a great G&T.
