The Oddbins Take

They Say

The Botanist is the first and only Islay dry gin. It is a small-batch, artisanal gin made by the Bruichladdich distillery, with 22 herbs and flowers foraged from the windswept hills, peat bogs and shores of Islay.

These are used alongside nine classic gin botanicals such as orris root and coriander seed to create an exceptional, satin-smooth spirit redolent of summer meadows, with an electrifying citrus burst and Atlantic freshness.

We Say

This is a captivating gin, made with a reverence to and understanding of the Islay environment. Fresh as a summer meadow, sea-swept and charming.

Alter Ego: Man Friday; a native islander that you will never want far from your side, it knows how to work its environment and makes the perfect (gin and) tonic after a long sea voyage.

Bruichladdich The Botanist Gin is the work of master distiller Jim McEwan, whom took on this unique project to create a truly enjoyable gin. Botanicals were hand picked by a team of experts and distilled for 17 hours in lomond pot stills, gently coaxing and releasing complex, signature aromas. The result is a gin with outstanding provenance and finish.
