The Botanist Gin is the first and only Islay Dry Gin from Islay, Scotland.
A versatile dry gin that is crafted using a unique combination of 22 botanicals that are hand-foraged locally and sustainably on the Scottish island of Islay.
These botanicals are picked at varying times of the year, and can only be picked when it’s dry—a frequent challenge on Islay! Our dedicated forager then carefully and meticulously dry all of the botanicals in order to be infused during our slow, simmer distillation process.
This incredible attention to detail results in a beautifully complex and elegantly smooth gin with a versatile flavor profile that is perfect for cocktails. This botanical breath of Islay is captured in a stunning glass bottle that features the 22 hand-picked botanicals etched in Latin and is best served in a classic Botanist & Tonic, or as a perfectly chilled martini. We encourage you to experiment with the local & seasonal flavors around you when making your unique Botanist cocktail.
