BRUICHLADDICH THE BOTANIST GIN
$60.95 + GST
A progressive exploration of the botanical heritage of our isle of Islay. 22 hand-foraged local botanicals delicately augment nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during an achingly slow distillation. This first and only Islay dry gin is a rare expression of the heart and soul of our remote Scottish island.
Plenty of juniper, lemon and orange zest mingling with meadowsweet and woodruff. The texture of the spirit is rather nice, with a slightly oily, pleasant palate coating presence. Cool mint and juniper. Citrus, primarily lemon zest on the early mid-palate before sweet spices and flower come through. Woodruff, chamomile and herbs de provence. Warm juniper late with echoes of vanilla cream, licorice and birch bark. Fairly long, fairly dry finish with a gentle, pleasing astringency.
