5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime..., 12 Nov 2013

I may be rather biased as the first time I tasted this gin was at the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay where the gin seemed to start life as a hobby project from a still called Ugly Betty. However, this is a particularly, beautifully subtle gin, all the more so for being a bit of a rarity. A slice of lime, ice and just a splash of tonic and you have the perfect G&T with a hint of the wild Atlantic Islay coast.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful gin, 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We first saw this gin in a restaurant bar, and having travelled around some of the Scottish distilleries were intrigued that it was made at Bruichladdich on Islay. Knowing how fine a whiskey they produce we gave The Botanist a try, and we really like it. It has a very distinctive juniper flavour with hints of herb which make it very pleasant to drink. I sincerely hope it becomes as successful as Islay whiskey!

I tried this first at the Fischer's [...] and loved it, so tried it again at the Pleased To Meet You, Newcastle [...]
Truly excellent with a Fentiman's tonic and a sprig of mint. Elevates a G&T to another level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure pleasure, 21 April 2014

This review is from: Botanist Islay Dry Gin 70 cl (Grocery)
Most gins need mixers to compliment them, and to temper their harshness on the palate.

To mix this gin is almost sacrilege. It mixes well, and makes a mean G&T, but to truly appreciate it, this spirit should be taken neat, over ice if that's your preference.

A dash of bitters is pushing the boundaries of acceptable, but again delivers a superlative drink.

Pure pleasure.
