Bruichladdich "The Botanist" Islay Dry Gin Pf. Scotland 1992

Winemaker's Notes:

"For this, "The Botanist", small-batch, artisanal Islay gin we use nine of the classic gin aromatics – orris root, cassia bark, coriander seed, etc – and augment these with a heady harvest of *22 wild, native island botanicals*. This truly seasonal and exotic cocktail is then slow "simmer" distilled in our unique and cherished pot-still, "ugly betty". Betty prefers to work at low-pressure and won’t be rushed. So our precious botanicals are slowly and gently coaxed into releasing their complex, signature aromatics."Producer's Website *Available for shipping in New York State only.*

Bruichladdich (try ‘Brook-Laddie’) is a Gaelic reference to the ‘raised beach’ upon which the distillery is sited, on the Hebridean Isle of Islay, on Scotland’s wild west coast. Built in 1881 by William Harvey and his brothers, it was closed down in 1994 as “surplus to requirements”. On 19th December 2000 it was acquired by a small group of private investors led by Mark Reynier. Following extensive renovation, the distillery recommenced distilling at 08.23 on the 29th May 2001. Bruichladdich, now a private Scottish company operated, managed and directed on Islay. Scotland’s purest single malt whisky is made from an unusual marriage of manual C19 equipment, inspirational distillery design and pre-industrial distilling techniques. 500,000 - 700,000 litres are distilled annually from 100% Scottish barley – increasingly Organic and Islay grown – from different farms (terroirs), varieties and peating levels.

The spirit is satin smooth gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before. A totally seductive experience. Sweet delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper, coriander with aniseed undertones, lemon and orange peel, a bouquet of summer flowers on the machir, honey from thistle, coconut from gorse, wild mint and summer meadows.
