This beautiful gin is hand crafted by Dunnet Bay Distillers in Caithness, northern Scotland. They only use local and traditional botanicals. It's fresh and very smooth!
DBD was founded in 2014 by Claire and Martin. Their first copper pot still 'Elizabeth' was installed and they perfected the recipe for Rock Rose Gin. They aimed to make and sell 10,000 bottle within the first year but smashed their target and sold 9,000 within the first quarter of distilling. They've been going strong ever since!
Nose - A delicate bouquet of rose, mixed with deeper cardamom and a touch of citrus.
Palate - Fruity berries merge with a floral nose to give a full bodied, rounded gin. Bright notes ping as the juniper comes forward.
Finish - The sharpness of the sea buckthorn emerges, but once again is rounded off by berries and a juniper heart. Smooth sherbet lemon notes create a lingering finish.
