The Botanist Islay Dry Gin

Size: 750ml

Wine Enthusiast: 88

"Botanicals are the very essence of gin, its reason for being. For this, 'The Botanist', small-batch, artisanal Islay gin we use nine of the classic gin aromatics — orris root, cassia bark, coriander seed, etc — and augment these with a heady harvest of 22 local botanicals, hand-picked by our expert foraging team from the windswept hills, peat bogs, and Atlantic shores of this Hebridean island of Islay. This truly seasonal and exotic cocktail is then slow 'simmer' distilled in our unique and cherished Lomond pot-still, affectionately known by our head distiller Jim McEwan as 'Ugly Betty'. The result: a highly distinctive, complex, floral gin with outstanding finish and impeccable provenance. In an age of re-badged industrial gins, the Botanist stands out as a truly artisanal, small-batch, hand-crafted labour of love and distiller's art. A breath of botanical Islay in every glass." —producer

"Although the 'Botanist' name might suggest a floral gin, instead the flavor profile veers toward herbs and spices. There's a subtle, herbal scent, with anise flavors up front, backed by coriander seed and cassia bark on the spicy finish. Made by Bruichladdich Distillery, which is renowned for its Scotch, on a pot-still named Ugly Betty. Sold in an attractive, square-shouldered, gift-worthy bottle." —Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Beluga Noble vodka is the heart and soul of the Beluga brand. This distinguished product epitomizes the field-to-bottle principle, Beluga vodka is renowned for across the globe. Beluga Noble is produced in Montenegro, the vibrant jewel of the Adriatic, from the purest ingredients sourced from our very own distillery in the crisp, cool Baltic.

"The smooth, balanced taste of Beluga Noble comes from the precision and efforts our vodka masters. Our vodka is triple-filtered and extensively rested for 30 days, giving it time to mature and acquire its balanced flavor and aroma, lightly malty with a distant hint of flowers.

"Beluga Noble is the taste that is Beluga – smooth, noble, and pure - and is an excellent choice for your martini. Best consumed with caviar." —producer
