Rock Rose Gin Uncorks Summer Edition 2022
Dunnet Bay Distillers has just launched its 2022 Rock Rose Gin Summer Edition (41.5%ABV).
Distilled using ingredients from the gardens and rockery of this eco-friendly distillery, this expression brings a taste of the Scottish summer garden to Rock Rose Gin.
The challenge the makers set themselves was to make a citrus style gin using botanicals growing in the distillery garden and with no peels. Claire Murray, co-founder and co-director of Dunnet Bay Distillers, said: "Lots of discussions and research took place with Hanna, our gardener, and she planted, harvested, and dried numerous botanicals for us to taste and experiment with. The chosen botanicals include lemon balm, clover, lemon thyme, pineapple sage, meadow-sweet, and elderflowers. It's a light, bright, citrusy and herbal spirit that captures the essence of our summer garden."
Price £39 for a 70cl bottle or £32 for a fully recyclable refill pouch.
