The Botanist Islay Dry Gin Miniature
An energizing and irregular gin from Islay whisky refinery Bruichladdich, The Botanist is made in a Lomond still called Ugly Betty and contains no less than 31 botanicals, of which 22 are local toward the Southern Hebridean island itself. The last incorporate any semblance of mugwort, meadowsweet and the perplexing Lady's Bedstraw blossoms, and the resultant dry gin is depicted, maybe obviously, as 'floral'.
Botanicals are - 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, lardy'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.
Serve with an Indian tonic, botanical tonic or a lemonade and garnish with any of these - grapefruit, mint, liquorice, coriander, sage, lemon balm over ice.
