A versatile dry gin that is crafted using a unique combination of 22 botanicals that are hand-foraged locally and sustainably on the Scottish island of Islay. These botanicals are picked at varying times of the year, and can only be picked when it’s dry—a frequent challenge on Islay! Our dedicated Scottish foragers then carefully and meticulously dry all of the botanicals in order to be infused during our slow, simmer distillation process.
This incredible attention to detail is to ensure we give our artisanal spirit the best chance it can to embody a unique flavor profile that yields a gin that is both beautifully complex and elegantly smooth. This botanical breath of Islay is captured in a stunning glass bottle that features the 22 hand-picked botanicals etched in Latin and is best served neat, in a classic Botanist & Tonic, or as a perfectly chilled martini.

“We believe that Islay gin should have an authenticity derived from where it is distilled and where it is bottled... from the philosophies of those who distill it. A sense of place, of terroir that speaks of the land, the botanicals and water from which it was made, and of human soul that gave it life.”
Built in 1881 on the wild Scottish island of Islay, our distillery still uses the original Victorian equipment to create a range of artisanal single malt whiskies and a botanical gin that are all trickle distilled and bottled solely on Islay by a skilled team of 78 men and women.
Diversity starts in the field. Provenance is key. We believe the interaction of man, land, soil and climate is paramount. We value our farmer relationships, reconnecting that lost cycle between farmer and distiller -- land and spirit.
