Rock Rose Gin gets its wonderful flavour from a carefully selected and put together the creation of local and traditional botanicals. Each one is meticulously chosen for its flavour properties to create the perfect taste.

After fifty-five experiments by Martin & Claire, the final recipe was chosen to give a wee taste of Caithness and the very first batch was distilled on the 17th August 2014.

Tasting notes by the distiller

The nose

A delicate bouquet of rose, mixed with deeper cardamom and a touch of citrus.

The palate

Fruity berries merge with a floral nose to give a full-bodied, rounded gin. Bright notes ping as the juniper comes forward.

The finish

The sharpness of the sea buckthorn emerges, but once again is rounded off by berries and a juniper heart.

Description

OUR PROCESS

Our precious botanicals are carefully harvested and stored before our bespoke copper pot stills, ‘Elizabeth’ and ‘Margaret’, made by John Dore & Co. Ltd, the oldest still maker in the world, work their magic. Our two ‘girls’ have been uniquely designed just to create our spirits using a traditional handmade copper head along with a botanical vapour basket, ours is a small batch process of 500 litres.
