Rock Rose Gin
Rock Rose // Scotland
Founded in 2014, Dunnet Bay Distillers is based at Dunnet Head on the Northern mainland of Scotland, making it the northernmost operating distillery in mainland Britain. It was founded and ran by the husband and wife team of Martin and Claire Murray. Their first product, Rock Rose Gin is made with several botanicals, including juniper berries, rose root, sea buckthorn, rowan berries, blaeberries, cardamom, coriander seed and verbana, many of which are grown in Scotland. After the botanicals are vapor distilled with the based spirit in "Elizabeth", the distillery's copper pot still, the gin is then bottled at 41.5% ABV.
Distilled GinThis style of gin takes a neutral spirit and then adds juniper berries and other natural flavorings before it is re-distilled. After distillation, additional flavors (artificial or natural) and sweeteners may be added.
