It's the winter edition of the Rock Rose Gin season variants, each made with a flavour profile that correlates to a different season. For this expression, the Dunnet Bay Distillers aimed for a juniper-forward, pine-y flavour profile.

Rock Rose Gin is a family owned Scottish, handcrafted gin that is zesty and flavourful but surprisingly smooth. It is made with an infusion of traditional and local botanicals, 5 of which are hand foraged from local cliffs and forests. The precious botanicals are blessed with the freshest air and purest water from the Scottish Highlands.

The name Rock Rose Gin comes from one of the local botanicals, Rhodiola rosea, a rose, found off Caithness’s wild coastline where it was once harvested by Vikings over 1000 years ago for its strength and vitality. We select our juniper from two different countries, Bulgarian juniper to create a real depth of flavour alongside Italian juniper to give slightly more delicate lemon sherbet notes. Our locally foraged botanicals include rowan and hawthorn berries and sea buckthorn. Each bottle is hand waxed, numbered and signed before it leaves the distillery. Rock Rose Gin is made using a slower vapour infused process to extract the botanical flavours and it is made in some of the most rugged but beautiful scenery in Scotland making it a true ‘Wonder of the Wilderness!’

Rock Rose Winter Edition Gin (700 ml)

The original Rock Rose elements have been toned down to allow the more piny, earthy notes from the star “Winter” botanical of spruce tips to shine through. Pine dominates the senses, unfolding on the nose and mouth and conjuring images of frost tipped Christmas trees and briskly cold winter mornings. There’s a dusty, earthy hint to the nose, along with a dark green vegetal quality.

As the name suggests, this is a bracing gin that captures the sense of sweeping winds and pine-laden evergreens on an otherwise barren landscape. Spruce and juniper cover the tongue, while a deep wintry warmth heats up the throat. The gin has a strong herbal feel, with a hint of stinging nettles and a touch of lemony coriander.
