About this deal

hand-picked local botanicals delicately refine nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during a painfully slow distillation. Please always check both the number of parcels and the condition of any wines you sign for - as we cannot be held liable for any breakages once you have accepted and signed for them. Twenty-two botanicals are hand-foraged from hills, shores and bays then slowly distilled with nine berries, barks, seeds and peels to create a spirit that captures the heart and soul of this remote Scottish island. A favourite with many gin lovers, Botanist is currently the only gin produced on the wind-swept island of Islay off the west coast of mainland Scotland. Wild Island Botanic Gin infuses naturally growing botanicals from the remote Hebridean island with 100% British Wheat spirit, to create a premium gin of the highest quality.

Combined with a high ABV, you’ll find Botanist gin is a premium Scottish gin, distilled at Bruichladdich distillery on the isle of Islay off the west coast of Scotland. Using a total of 16 botanicals and distilled using the traditional single copper pot still method, we have created a gin that has a refreshing lemon base, pronounced further by a diverse array of leaves and flowers – including lemon balm – hand foraged on the island and selected to deliver a gentle floral, citrus fresh character. Curator’s Gin is a rarefied expression of the secret treasures of Cambridge University Botanic Garden.

Crafted in a century old copper still at Langley Distillery, using 100% British Wheat infused with six native hand foraged botanicals growing wild on our island and a further ten as the base. Distilled in London, Kew gin includes botanicals that come directly from the Gardens such as douglas fir, fragrant lavender and sweet orange.They say it's smooth, very drinkable, and perfect for drinking on its own or with a good quality tonic. The nose is a rich complex of fresh juniper, followed quickly by coriander and a complexity of gin flavours. This richly complex gin is a collaboration with and a true celebration of the University of Oxford’s extraordinary Botanic Garden – the oldest of its kind in the country.
