Dunnet Bay Distillers has launched its 2022 Rock Rose Gin Summer Edition (41.5%ABV) using ingredients from the gardens and rockery of the eco-friendly distillery.
The challenge the makers set themselves was to make a citrus-style gin using botanicals growing in the distillery garden and with no peels.
Claire Murray, co-founder and co-director of Dunnet Bay Distillers, 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, meadow-sweet, and elderflowers. It’s a light, bright, citrusy and herbal spirit that captures the essence of our summer garden.”
