Rock Rose Gin
Multiple-award winning gin. Flavourful and fresh, zesty yet berryful with a long smooth finish. 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.
Rhodiola rosea: Locally harvested Rhodiola rosea, perhaps more commonly known as rose root, which is a plant that grows in colder climes – ideal for the fresh breezes of Caithness.
Sea Buckthorn: A silvery leafed shrub that grows along the coastline and produces clusters of vibrant orange berry-like fruit, soft, juicy and rich in oils. The fruit is highly celebrated for its high vitamin C content, around 15 times more than an orange!
Rowan berries: The deciduous tree, sometimes known as mountain ash, produces a brilliant red berry-like fruit. The tree is very much celebrated as a ‘hero’ in many mythology and folklore tales. In Norse mythology the rowan was called the ‘Salvation of Thor’ as the Thunder God, Thor was once saved from drowning by a rowan branch. Incidentally our nearest town, Thurso, was named after Thor! It has also been known as a ‘tree of protection’ and its position and branches used against witchcraft. The tree is a hero for Rock Rose too as its gorgeous red fruit imparts a delicate flavour adding to the berryful taste!
Other botanicals: These include blaeberries, cardamon,coriander seed and verbena to name but a few!
