Botanist Islay Dry Gin

Botanist Islay Dry Gin taste is rich and mellow; cool on entry then as it reaches the back palate you can feel the warmth and absolute purity of slow unhurried distillation.

Botanist Islay Dry Gin is a bewitching, delectable and luxurious gin; its citrus freshness excites and stimulates the taste buds allowing you to experience a starburst of flavours as they explode across the palate.

Botanist Islay Dry Gin spirit is satin smooth gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before.

A totally seductive experience

The Bruichladdich distillery is located on the north shore of Lochindaal, near to Port Charlotte and directly opposite Bowmore.

This made it the westernmost distillery in Scotland until Kilchoman was officially opened in 2005.

Bruichladdich was constructed in 1881 by Robert, William and John Gourlay Harvey.

Background:-

Members of the Harvey family remained owners and shareholders until 1929 when the Bruichladdich distillery was mothballed.

In 1938 Bruichladdich was sold and the distillery kept changing hands like a hot potato for next 40 years.

In 1952 it was sold to Ross & Coulter Ltd, who in turn sold it to A.B. Grant in 1960.

Invergordon Distillers acquired Bruichladdich in 1968 and expanded the number of stills from two to four in 1975, before selling it to JBB / Whyte & Mackay.

The Bruichladdich distillery was mothballed again in January 1995 and sold in 2000 to a consortium of twenty five different shareholders.

Amongst them seasoned professionals like Jim McEwan (formerly of Bowmore) and Murray McDavid’s Mark Reynier.

Apart from the traditionally lightly peated spirit that is produced under the name Bruichladdich, two more heavily peated malts are being produced.

A heavily peated malt under the name ‘Port Charlotte’ (the name of the nearby village) produced since the start and an even more heavily peated malt with the name ‘Octomore’.

Bruichladdich has now changed hands yet again and is now owned by drinks conglomerate Remy Cointreau.

Moniack Mead

Rating:
Moniack Mead is a traditional honey mead which is produced at Moniack Castle by Highland Wineries, and is said to be one of the best meads being made in modern times. Mead is one of the oldest alcoholic drinks known in history and, like all meads, Moniack Mead is produced through the process of fermenting honey. An interesting fact about mead is that it is traditionally drunk for the month after a wedding which is where the word “honeymoon” came from. Moniack Mead has a lovely, lingering and smooth flavour with elements of caramel and fermented honey. Our recommendation is that this mead is best served either chilled or if you prefer as a aperitif. 75cl bottle

Bruadar Whisky Liqueur

Bruadar Whisky Liqueur is a beguiling  marriage of Single Malt Scotch Whisky with the unique  flavours of Honey & Sloe Berries. At 22% there's still a warm aftertaste of the Tullibardine single malt whisky, but it has been softened by the addition of honey. The sloes add a delicate fruitiness to the finish.
