The Oddbins Take

They Say

Our precious botanicals are carefully picked and prepared before Elizabeth, our traditional copper pot still, works her magic; the vapours pass over the basket where our botanicals will impart their wonderful flavours creating the delicious taste that is Rock Rose gin.

We use the following botanicals to help give a cool, fresh taste. Just like a spring day in Caithness!

Gorse Flowers: Bringing a gorgeous coconut like aroma to the distillation.

Dandelion: Lovely earthy, liqourice flavours come to the fore and help balance out the sweetness.

Coltsfoot: Once used in confectionary, Coltsfoot from the distillery gardens help provide more sweetness to the gin.

We also increase the cardamom and water mint to help balance these ingredients and bring a freshness.

We Say

There are a number of differences between the residence of Caithness, Scotland and the people of California. Californians receive a healthy amount of vitamin D, the Caithnessans haven’t seen the sun since the summer of 2013. The starkest contrast however is how they celebrate the arrival of spring; while Californians are yelling “woo Spring Break” & troubling Mexicans with their pronunciation of Mojito, the people of Caithness are making exceptional seasonal gin. That being said, they share a similar revelry when engaging in their respective rituals; with botanicals of gorse flowers, dandelion and coltsfoot, a sip of Rock Rose Spring Edition could even get the Terminator hollering “woo spring break!”
