Botanicals gathered from Monday’s #BeTheBotanist foraging trip, inspired by The Botanist Gin, whose 22 of 31 botanicals are hand-picked on the Scottish Island of Islay. We are so fortunate to live in a climate that can support similar flora, which gives us an abundance of flavour and opportunity to create unforgettable cocktails. A massive thank you to The Botanist Brand-Ambassador Gez McAlpine, and foraging guide Alexander McNaughton, who dropped a wealth of knowledge on us about our home turf.
From top: Vanilla leaf, The Botanist gin martini, reindeer lichen, and myrica gale, otherwise known as bog myrtle and one of the 22 foraged botanicals found in The Botanist Gin.
