Product information

The Botanist is an artisanal hand-crafted and distilled gin made at Bruichladdich distillery on the Scottish island of Islay. As the first Islay Dry Gin it is truly unique, with 22 wild and hand-foraged, local herbs and flowers delicately and slowly distilled with nine classic gin botanicals. The botanicals are gathered responsibly from the hills, shores and bogs of the Hebridean Island by The Botanist's expert forager, with the liquid capturing the heart and soul of the island.
The Botanist is floral with a hint of citrus, so try it in a martini or with tonic and a seasonal garnish, as well as in any classic gin cocktail.
As of 2020, Bruichladdich Distillery is proud to be the first whisky and gin distilling company in Europe to become a certified B Corporation. BCorp certified means meeting the stringent standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency."

Why not try The Botanist in a classic martini? Stir 50ml of The Botanist Gin and 10ml of dry vermouth over ice, and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with an olive or a lemon twist!

very delicate taste and aroma- disappointing

Did not enjoy at all, but guess many do. I felt it has less profile than sip-smith so after this experiment will go back to my favourite. Glad others enjoy this though.

Excellent Gin

Was given this by Ocado to review. I thought I had.but appears Im a bit late.BUT is fabulous Gin. Im a Tanqueray drinker and really thought nothing would come close, however Im wrong. This is the best Gin Ive had and Im buying another for Christmas. Brilliant in its subtleness, delicate and full of flavour. You wont regret buying it

I am reviewing this as was sent a free sample from Ocado. Im not a massive gin drinker but as gin goes, this one is nice and refreshing. Love the bottle design and it came with a cool tin and some seeds to grow chamomile which is super cute. Would buy again

the perfect botanical gin

This gin is just perfect. Use with Fever Tree Mediterranean, a slice of lemon, a rosemary sprig and a raspberry. Or with Fever Tree Cucumber and a slice of cucumber and lemon, or with the Elderflower Fever Tree. All delicious
