Bruichladdich The Botanist Islay Dry Gin

"Botanicals are the very essence of gin, its reason for being. 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 local botanicals, hand-picked by our expert foraging team from the windswept hills, peat bogs, and Atlantic shores of this Hebridean island of Islay. This truly seasonal and exotic cocktail is then slow 'simmer' distilled in our unique and cherished Lomond pot-still, affectionately known by our head distiller Jim McEwan as 'Ugly Betty'. The result: a highly distinctive, complex, floral gin with outstanding finish and impeccable provenance. In an age of re-badged industrial gins, the Botanist stands out as a truly artisanal, small-batch, hand-crafted labour of love and distiller's art. A breath of botanical Islay in every glass." —producer

"Although the 'Botanist' name might suggest a floral gin, instead the flavor profile veers toward herbs and spices. There's a subtle, herbal scent, with anise flavors up front, backed by coriander seed and cassia bark on the spicy finish. Made by Bruichladdich Distillery, which is renowned for its Scotch, on a pot-still named Ugly Betty. Sold in an attractive, square-shouldered, gift-worthy bottle." —Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Laphroaig 10-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

"In making Laphroaig, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat, found only on Islay, gives Laphroaig its particularly rich flavour. Laphroaig is best savoured neat, or with a little cool water. Roll it around on your tongue. Release the pungent, earthy aroma of blue peat smoke, the sweet nuttiness of the barley, the delicate heathery perfume of Islay's streams. It is as unique as the island itself." —producer
