A garden in each bottle

Rock Rose gin
The new Rock Rose Summer Edition.

A TASTE of the Scottish summer garden is how Dunnet Bay Distillers has described its new Rock Rose Gin Summer Edition.

The distiller set out to make a citrus-style gin using botanicals growing in the distillery garden and with no peels.

Co-founder Claire Murray said: “Lots of discussions and research took place with Hanna, our gardener, and she planted, harvested, and dried numerous botanicals for us to taste and experiment with.

“The chosen botanicals include lemon balm, clover, lemon thyme, pineapple sage, meadowsweet, and elderflowers.

“It’s a light, bright, citrusy and herbal spirit that captures the essence of our summer garden.”
