This special edition Scottish Gin is a follow on from the popular 2016 ‘Design a Rock Rose Gin Label’ competition. Botanicals include pink grapefruit peel, which is vapour infused along with other traditional gin botanicals. The gin is then lightly sweetened with muscovado sugar, which makes the gin an Old Tom style gin. The result is a gin with a wonderful fresh citrus flavour and a beautiful sweetness.

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.

Old Tom Gin

Old Tom Gin is a style of gin that’s had a resurgence in recent years. Old Tom Gins can be described as being similar to London Dry Gins expect sweeter. Normally, sugars, honey or sweet syrups are added in the distillation or post-distillation to create a sweet style gin that retains botanical flavours but is underpinned with sweet notes on the palate.

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.
