The Botanist Gin
Welcome to Day 3 of #GinMonth as I review The Botanist Gin from Bruichladdich Distillery.
A cracking Gin distilled using local Juniper and another 21 local botanicals which make this Gin very much Islay in character.
I've been through a few bottles of this and absolutely love the new packaging, if you want a good quality gin you really should be trying some of this.
If you feel the same pop on over to Master of Malt and pick one up now.
(straight) initially there's a huge hit of Fresh floral juniper with hints of lemongrass and sweet citrus notes and hints of fresh ginger skin. (with tonic) the nose goes much more fresh and citrussy with lemongrass and lemon and lime peel, a touch of garden flora also.
(straight) quite strong and acetoney initialy but it calms down to a lemongrass with hints of fresh ginger. (with tonic) lovely and lemony, more floral notes of plant extract and lots of lemon and lime peel.
(straight) grated ginger spice with fresh lemongrass. (with tonic) super sweet lemongrass and crushed ginger.
