The Botanist Islay Gin is a premium batch-produced gin slowly distilled in a Lomond still on Islay in Scotland, using pure Islay spring water. It is flavoured with 9 traditional gin aromatics and 22 botanicals native to Islay. The result is a complex and floral gin that is fantastic in a range of cocktails. The Botanist is bottled at 46% ABV, stronger than most gins.
