Botanist Islay Dry Gin

The Botanist Islay Dry Gin is 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. It has perhaps the best looking packaging we've ever seen for a gin. It's not all style and no substance either. Botanist is a world-class gin set 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!

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.

It's the best!!! My very favorite and I'm worried because it seems to be a bit hard to get. Fingers crossed I'm always able to find it!! It just has a lovely flavor--only had it in gin tonic but oh! yum!!! I can't imagine what could be better!

Supreme Gin from Scotland!!
A World Class Gin! Sets the benchmark for smoothness and flavour. Pair with an Indian tonic and a cucumber and lime slice for the ultimate refreshment.

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.

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.
