A detailed description about this listing will be available soon
If you say to someone have a look at the gins by the Bruichladdich distillery they will most likely look at you blankly and say what?
However, if you say The Botanist most gin drinkers would sit up and say well why did you not say that.
To be honest, before undertaking this review I had not heard of the Bruichladdich distillery If you want to follow this brand then follow @thebotanist on Instagram. They are amazing. They are always doing lives about the ingredients they have sourced. On World Gin day they tracked where people were making cocktails all around the world. The bottle is really interesting not for the shape. It is the fact it has all 22 botanical latin names inscribed on the outside of the bottle. This creates quite a tactile feel when you pick it up to pour the second one !!! The nose of the gin can only be described as botanical. It’s not the in your face nose you get from a London Dry Gin. The taste well what can I say other than 22 botanicals hit your tongue all at the same time but they do so in unison. I have to say this is one of my favourite botanicals. I think it is quite versatile and can be used with most tonics. It would also work with cocktails and I think it would work even as a dry martini albeit a bit decadent.
Cost-wise it normally retails at £37-40 although at the time of writing 3rd July 2020 amazon.co.uk are offering it for £31.45
