Their 4-times distilled Poteen is the base for this gin. Botanicals, which include elderflower, are steeped in the base before distilling one more time.

Tasting Notes

"Just like their Heather Gin, Knockeen Hills is presenting a floral gin that isn't terribly floral. It has an oily, rich mouthfeel and is slightly harsh at the finish. Overall, the juniper is average and the elderflower is there, but not in strong enough amounts to make it the "star"."
