Comprehensively Scottish, Rock Rose is deliciously fresh and fruity with a tasty burst of citrus.
Rock Rose is proud that each year heralds a new vintage. Like a fine wine, their Caithness botanicals are dependent on their climes resulting in a truly hand crafted gin that will subtly change year on year, but is still undeniably Rock Rose.
A fabulously zesty, dry gin, incredibly varied on the nose, aromatic yet with strong juniper coming through. Floral and fruity, this spirit presents among the best of modern gins.
Rock Rose is an excellent gin, with a wondrous mouthfeel and unique flavours.
From the first whiff you can smell the botanicals, which are floral and crisp.
My recommended serve is over lots of ice, with orange peel and a sprig of rosemary.
When mixed with your favourite tonic, it really turns into something special. The botanicals really shine, and adding rosemary and orange really helps to enhance the sea buckthorn, which is wonderfully clean and fruity.
I love the depth of this gin, and it is a great and unique addition to any collection!
I tried this gin for the 1st time in December last year at the Edinburgh Christmas markets. The distillery was doing a tasting of all their gins and this is definitely my favourite from this distillery. It's absolutely lovely. ☺
