Review and Tasting


Sampled on 09/10/2020

Appearance:

Crystal clear. [ Sample bottle from batch 021]

Aroma:

Attractive floral elderflower with delicate bark-like notes from the birch buds.

Taste:

Superbly clean with elderflower and birch flavours nestling harmoniously with subtle spirituous spice.

Aftertaste:

Delicate spirituous spice with lingering floral elderflower.

Overall:

Highland Boundary Birch & Elderflower Spirit makes is an interesting alternative base for the numerous vodka-based cocktails made with elderflower liqueur. It boosts elderflower notes while the birch buds add a touch of extra complexity.
