Product Description

The Botanist Gin is the first and only Islay Dry Gin from Islay, Scotland. A versatile dry gin that is crafted using a unique combination of 22 botanicals that are hand-foraged locally and sustainably on the Scottish island of Islay. These botanicals are picked at varying times of the year, and can only be picked when it’s dry—a frequent challenge on Islay! Our dedicated forager then carefully and meticulously dry all of the botanicals in order to be infused during our slow, simmer distillation process. This incredible attention to detail results in a beautifully complex and elegantly smooth gin with a versatile flavor profile that is perfect for cocktails. This botanical breath of Islay is captured in a stunning glass bottle that features the 22 hand-picked botanicals etched in Latin and is best served in a classic Botanist & Tonic, or as a perfectly chilled martini. We encourage you to experiment with the local & seasonal flavors around you when making your unique Botanist cocktail.

    This was delightful. I had a gin and tonic so both the gin and the tonic water were Botanical and it was a delightful drink.

    Botanist dry gin is our mainstay for gin and tonics and gin martinis. It complements especially well with lemon, lime, and herbs in our drinks. (We also enjoy your flavored gins which provide seasonal variation

    I mix The Botanist in all my gin cocktails and it is always a hit. I especially enjoy my Botanist Martinis....just a splash of dry vermouth with gorgonzola filled jalapeño olives!! It is the perfect martini!!!

    The Botanist Gin pleasantly surprised my taste senses because it did not overwhelm me with a taste of pine tree with too much Juniper. It has become my go-to gin for every occasion!

    I generally include Botanist in a cocktail, although occasionally up on rocks does occur. I like the gin being from Scotland. I use Botanist to cool my body on a hot day, and cool my mind on a crazy day. I wear my vacation hat from Mexico, sit on my deck on the farm in the woods, and have my Botanist & Tonic on a sunny afternoon. That's how I feel about Botanist, like I'm on vacation.

    I keep a bootle in the freezer and enjoy it neat of an evening in the summer on the deck. Amazing, refreshing, more-ish
