Isle of Harris Gin (45%)

53.99

Isle of Harris Gin is a luxuriously smooth and complex spirit of superior quality, perfect to sip on its own, enjoy over ice or in a classic Martini.

It is made with with nine carefully chosen ingredients, each lending their own individual characteristics, and all sourced with exceptional attention to detail.

Sugar Kelp plays the starring role, bringing a complex, maritime edge. Juniper berries provide the dry gin character familiar to us all, giving green notes of leaf and pine. Coriander seeds provide citrus and spice flavours, with discreet orange and grapefruit twists. Cassia bark lends a gentle bitterness to the mix, as well as bringing the welcome warmth of cinnamon and a degree of mixed spice. Angelica root gives some sweet floral notes and adds to the wider green grassy and herbal aspects of the spirit.

Bitter orange peel, paradoxically, adds both bitter and sweet tastes and is very important in adding to the citrus flavours we love. Cubebs (an Indonesian spice) give a peppery flavour with an almost ginger-like note, as well as contributing to the overall complexity. Liquorice root is not added in sufficient quantities to give a direct anise flavour. Instead, it builds on the sweetness.  Finally, Orris root brings it all together, smoothing and integrating the other botanicals to ensure a well-rounded finish to the disparate flavours.
