Taste the botanical heritage of Islay
Complex and aromatic, The Botanist stands out with its extraordinary flavour and unique heritage
Smooth to the palate and uniquely aromatic, The Botanist surprises in a traditional gin and tonic. Aromatically, it presents a bright citrus opening with a complex layering of botanical elements. Mellowing out, it warms gradually and ends with a hint of spice. Created by the ingenious makers of Bruichladdich, it already has a proven popularity among enthusiasts.
22 of its 31 botanicals are locally handpicked herbs and flowers, foraged sustainably by botanical scientists in the Scottish island of Islay. The elixir goes through a 17-hour long distillation process using only natural spring water from Bruichladdich’s Octomore farm, which cures the spirit in a slow gentle simmer within the world’s only Lomond pot still.Smooth to the palate and uniquely aromatic, The Botanist surprises in a traditional gin and tonic.

Classic gin staples of cassia, angelica root, coriander, cinnamon, juniper, lemon, orange, Orris root, and liquorice are accented with additions like sweet chamomile, creeping thistle, apple mint, elder, downy birch, hawthorn and gorseflower, spearmint, thyme, mugwort, red clover, and wood sage.
On its own, The Botanist stands enchanting. But stirred into cocktails, the spirit enlivens and changes its reveal, widening a new range of flavors.
