type of drink
The Botanist is a unique gin which is created on the Scottish island of Islay. A skilled winemaker had to learn how to produce gin and buy a rare still-house of Lomond type, which allowed operating 24-hour time-consuming distillation. Moreover, Jim enlisted the co-operation of two local botanists who helped him to find and choose the plants to create a unique bouquet for future gin. The first batch of gin was produced in August 2010. Jim McEwen named it “The Botanist” in honor of the people without whom the product would not have been born.
