Distillery: Dunnet Bay Distillers
Brand: Rock Rose
Edition: Rock Rose Summer 2017
Since it's launch in 2015, Rock Rose gin has consistently managed to keep it's head above the craft gin parapit, demonstrating a resiliant and consistent approach to botanics and distillation. The Rock Rose Summer 2017 vintage is a wonderful combination of experimentation and competancy, and a testament to husband and wife Claire and Martin Murray's determination to build a spirits portfolio of real quality.
The Rock Rose summer 2017 vintage is a celebration of citrus notes. Lemon balm, lemon verbena and lemon thyme grown in the distiller's own garden marry with the gin's core botanicals to delivery somehting which stands out as part of a range, and is demonstrably different to the Classic Rock Rose and the Rock Rose Navy Strength.
Rock Rose gin gets its wonderful flavour from a carefully selected and put together creation of local and traditional botanicals. Each one meticulously chosen for their flavour properties to create the perfect taste. After 55 experiments by Martin & Claire Murray the final recipe was chosen to give a wee taste of Caithness and the very first batch was distilled on 17th August 2014.
