pungent, resiny piney juniper and eucalyptus with subtle parma violet, heather, candied ginger and sage.
Dry juniper with sappy pine dominating but with an integrated herbal complexity and faint liquorice sweetness.
Junipery pine dominance continues in the clean finish with faint lingering parma violet, liquorice and black pepper.
An "Islay Dry Gin" might suggest something peat influenced but The Botanist is superbly clean and juniper led, and while it features "22 native Islay botanicals," The Botanist is distinctly London dry in style.
