Botanist Islay Dry Gin Bottling Note

FREE GLASS WITH EVERY PURCHASE*!

Created at the Bruichladdich distillery, this superb Islay gin was distilled in the 'ugly betty' still described as "an oversized upside-down dustbin made of copper" by Tom Morton. Perhaps the best looking packaging we've ever seen for a gin - it's not all style and no substance either. This is a world-class gin, at a proper ABV.

A huge 31 botanicals go into The Botanist, 22 of which are foraged and native to Islay. The full list of botanicals is as follows: angelica root, apple mint, birch leaves, bog myrtle leaves, cassia bark, chamomile, cinnamon bark, coriander seed, creeping thistle flowers, elder flowers, gorse flowers, heather flowers, hawthorn flowers, juniper berries, lady's bedstraw flowers, lemon balm, lemon peel, liquorice root, meadow sweet, orange peel, oris root, peppermint leaves, mugwort leaves, red clover flowers, tansy, thyme leaves, water mint leaves, white clover, wood sage leaves. Phew!

*Applies to valid purchases of 70cl The Botanist on Master of Malt only. Offer valid from 15 March 2021 until 04 April 2021 or while limited promotional stock lasts. Not applicable in conjunction with any other offer.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Enough botanicals to make us wish we had five noses. Big notes of citrus, delicate menthol and flowers everywhere!

Palate: Cool at first. It quickly mellows out, warmth growing with citrus keeping it fresh throughout.

Finish: Long, with a good spice.

Overall: Islay isn't just about the whisky anymore. The Botanist Gin is top-notch.

Botanist Islay Dry Gin Reviews

Top class gin

One of the best gins I drink but hard to purchase

29th March 2021

Botanist Gin

The smoothest Gin I have had. Never used to be a Gin drinker but I clearly hadn't been using the right Gin.
Any of the Island Gins are nice but this is the best.

More like vodka

One of my favourite bottles but the gin itself is very dull with very little flavour.

Buy again, and again, and....

This is one of my firm favourites, top gin!

Underwhelmed

I love the bottle and label design. I also think you’re less likely to get a hangover from this than a cheaper offering. However, on first drink this tasted more like vodka to me. I didn’t find it to be super flavorful. Maybe I wanted more juniper.

Beautiful, smooth, delicious!

Incredibly smooth, received as a gift and will definitely buy again. Drink with a light tonic to allow this subtle gin to stand out.
