A garden gin

Rock Rose Gin Summer Edition

DUNNET Bay Distillers has uncorked the latest seasonal variant in the Rock Rose Gin range.

Rock Rose Gin Summer Edition is a 41.5% ABV spirit distilled using ingredients from the gardens and rockers around the brand’s distillery.

Priced at £39 for a 70cl bottle or £32 for a recyclable refill pouch, tasting notes for the limited expression describe a gin that brings “a taste of the Scottish summer garden to Rock Rose Gin.”

Claire Murray, co-founder and co-director of Dunnet Bay Distillers, said: “Lots of discussions and research took place with Hanna, our gardener, and she planted, harvested, and dried numerous botanicals for us to taste and experiment with.

“The chosen botanicals include lemon balm, clover, lemon thyme, pineapple sage, meadow-sweet, and elderflowers.

“It’s a light, bright, citrusy and herbal spirit.”
