It’s International Gin & Tonic Day so let’s celebrate with Gin, recipes and gifts ideas!

The Botanist Gin

The Botanist Gin boasts notes of water mint, hawthorn, wood sage, sweet cicely, cinnamon, citrus and soft juniper offering a harmonious combination with a gentle, satin-soft texture. This Scottish gin also features sweet and earthy flavours combined with delicate floral and herbal notes of the Islay 22. Each sip of this gin reveals deeper layers and more complex combinations of delicate flavours.

The Botanist Gin has a rich and mellow taste that is cool on entry then warming across the palate, stimulating the taste buds with a round mouthfeel and citrus freshness. The balance and complexity are distinctive. This complexity and versatility are perfectly suited to creating a foraged serve of your own at home this summer.

The Botanist Gin is available at all major retailers online via: www.thebotanist.com. RRP: $86.
