For this, "The Botanist", small-batch, artisanal Islay gin we use nine of the classic gin aromatics - orris root, cassia bark, coriander seed, etc - and augment these with a heady harvest of 22 wild, native island botanicals, hand-picked by our expert foraging team from the windswept hills, peat bogs and atlantic shores of this Hebridean island of Islay.

This is the smoothest gin money can buy: a straight sipping gin (!!) with great complexity and subtlety of taste. One to linger over.
It can also be the basis of a great, classic dry martini, as long as it's not swamped by additional alcoholic gizmos. (But then it wouldn't be a classic dry martini, would it?)
