Wild Island - Botanic Gin (70cl, 43.7%)
Conceived on the Isle of Colonsay, one of Scotland’s Southern Hebridean islands.
Born in a traditional copper still infused with six native hand foraged botanicals growing wild on the island and a further ten as their base. Enjoyed by discerning gin drinkers everywhere. Wild Island Botanic Gin infuses naturally growing botanicals from the remote Hebridean island with 100% British Wheat spirit, to create a premium gin of the highest quality.
Wild Island have created a gin that has a refreshing lemon base, pronounced further by a diverse array of leaves and flowers, including lemon balm, selected to deliver a gentle floral, citrus fresh character.
Produced in small batches and released only 750 bottles at a time, this is incredibly smooth and easy to drink and is perfect for creating the classic G&T.
