Botanist 22. Шотландский необыкновенный элитный джин, название которого указывает на то, что перед нами изысканный дар богини Флоры, ведь для изготовления этого уникального напитка используется 31 компонент, 22 из которых «местные» растения острова Айла. Сбор происходит только вручную, после ингредиенты измельчаются, проходят мацерацию и медленно перегоняются под низким давлением. Букет нежный, насыщенный цитрусовыми нотами, прекрасно звучат оттенки специй, легко и соблазнительно проявляются нюансы ментола. Вкус сбалансированный и мягкий, невероятно свежий, ярко и восхитительно звучат цветочно-травяные ноты, разбавленные мятными оттенками, плавно переходящими в приятное послевкусие.


For this, “the botanist”, artisanal islay gin we use nine of the classic gin aromatics – orris root, cassia bark, coriander seed, etc – and augment these with a heady harvest of 22 local botanicals, hand-picked by our expert foraging team from the windswept hills, peat bogs and atlantic shores of this hebridean island of islay.

This truly seasonal and exotic serve is then slow “simmer” distilled in our unique and cherished lomond pot-still, affectionately known by our head distiller jim mcewan as “ugly betty”. Betty prefers to work at low-pressure and won’t be rushed. So our precious botanicals are slowly and gently coaxed into releasing their complex, signature aromatics.

This was a unique project for jim. Jim says he had to “learn a new dance” with betty, and none of us knew what to expect from that first, achingly-slow 17 hour distillation. The result: a highly distinctive, complex, floral gin with outstanding finish and impeccable provenance. In an age of re-badged industrial gins, the botanist stands out as a truly artisanal, hand-crafted labour of love and distiller’s art. A breath of botanical islay in every glass.

The botanist is a gin of layered complexity. A progressive exploration of the botanical heritage of our isle of islay. Nine classic gin botanicals are augmented by 22 local herbs and flowers, foraged responsibly and by hand from the hills, shores and bogs of this fertile hebridean island by our own team of botanical scientists. The result is a gin as much for the mind as the palate; a thinking person’s gin. A roller coaster botanical odyssey in a glass.

Colour quicksilver.

Body the spirit is satin smooth gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before. A totally seductive experience.

Nose the aromas explode like an olfactory aurora borealis, filling the senses with meteorites of smell sensations as they explode from the glass.

Sweet delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper, coriander with aniseed undertones, lemon and orange peel, a bouquet of summer flowers on the machir, honey from thistle, coconut from gorse, wild mint and summer meadows. It’s a magical melody of islay’s natural bounty from the atlantic washed beaches to the summit of heather covered hills. Inhale and you’re there on the queen of the hebrides!

Palate the taste is rich and mellow; cool on entry then as it reaches the back palate you can feel the warmth and absolute purity of slow unhurried distillation. This is a bewitching, delectable and luxurious gin; its citrus freshness excites and stimulates the taste buds allowing you to experience a starburst of flavours as they explode across the palate.

Finish all this from a beaten up old pot still, operated by beaten up distillers on the coast of heaven.

Mood carefree. The electric buzz of illicit anticipation.
