Delicate, Balanced & Complex

"When we distill The Botanist, we are creating something more than a drink. The Botanist is a representation of the place we are from. It is a way of communicating our place in the world and our love for it."Distilling is a way of life, and for me it is a way of communicating to the world. We use the art of distillation and a connection to the land, our home, to create a wonderful gin that's the essence of Islay."

Adam Hannet, Head Distiller

When encountering this exceptional Islay gin, it's clear that no detail has been overlooked in capturing the essence of this remarkable location. From the satin-smooth balance of the liquid to the earthy, herbaceous aromas that transport you to the island's moors and woodlands, every sip is a journey in itself. This gin is a true testament to the Islay's reputation for producing the world's highest quality spirits, and a must-try for any gin enthusiast seeking a taste of the island's unique character.
