Flavoured with Apothecary Rose grown in the Secret Herb Garden near Edinburgh where this gin is also distilled.
Sampled on 31/01/2018
Clear, very pale salmon pink.
Very floral with rose water and potpourri. Juniper aromas are very subdued.
Floral notes continue on the dry palate where juniper and other gin flavours are more dominant with pine, nutty woodiness and peppery spice.
Piney juniper is even more assertive in the lightly spicy floral finish.
Floral yes, but with distinctive classic juniper-led classic gin notes. The salmon-pink colour, along with the Rose name and imagery may be off-putting to traditional gin lovers, but many would be pleasantly surprised if they tried this well-balanced gin. Apothecary Rose Gin also represents an interesting ingredient to introduce complex floral notes to cocktail recipes.
