How to Drink
The Botanist is a versatile gin, thanks to its flavour profile. The 22 hand-foraged Islay botanicals create grassy, floral, menthol, sweet and herbaceous notes which can be enhanced through different servings and garnishes. Because everyone’s taste is unique to them, we don’t prescribe a perfect serve for The Botanist. If you fancy a G&T we believe it’s best served with a local/seasonal garnish of your choosing and a premium tonic water. There are amazing flavours just waiting to be discovered so if you can, take the time to get outside, explore and experiment. Start your journey here.
If you prefer to enjoy your gin in a cocktail, the flavours in The Botanist lend themselves well to classics like the Martini, or something altogether more experimental with foraged ingredients.
There are a team of amazing people working on The Botanist. We’ll be Introducing you to them over the coming months, but for now, you can find out more about James Donaldson, the man responsible for picking the 22 botanicals for The Botanist, and Adam Hannett, Head Distiller at Bruichladdich Distillery. We’re fortunate to be part of an incredible global network of foragers, chefs and bartenders. You can read about them in our ‘People‘ section.
