Tasting notes

A delicate bouquet of rose, mixed with deeper cardamom and a touch of citrus

Fruity berries merge with a floral nose to give a full-bodied, rounded gin. Bright notes ping as the juniper comes forward

The sharpness of the sea buckthorn emerges, but once again is rounded off by berries and a juniper heart. Smooth sherbet lemon notes create a lingering finish

Key Botanical(s):

Rhodiola Rosea, Sea Buckthorn, Cardamom

About

Dunnet Bay Distillery was established by founders Claire and Martin Murray, who returned to the Caithness area after years of studying and working away. Their desire to return home and strike the right balance of family and work life, led them build their own distillery in Dunnet Bay in 2014, just ahead of the Scottish Gin craft boom. They've fulfilled their ambition to create jobs and produce award-winning spirits, which are distributed and enjoyed all over the world.

London Dry Gin

London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.

Production

It’s considered to be one of the original new generation of craft distilleries in Scotland’s growing Scottish Gin sector, Dunnet Bay Distillery, home to the Rock Rose brand of Scottish Gin expressions. As the UK’s most northerly mainland distillery, Dunnet Bay Distillery is situated in the picturesque coastal region of Caithness on the North coast of Scotland in the village of Dunnet Bay, established Martin and Claire Murray in 2014 after a long held desire to return to their hometown of Caithness. Rock Rose Gin is made in two bespoke copper pot stills, 'Elizabeth' and 'Margaret', made by John Dore & Co Ltd, the oldest still maker in the world.
