Wild Island Botanic Gin
Isle of Colonsay, Colonsay Beverages/Scalasaig, Scotland, 700 ml
The idea for Wild Island Botanic Gin was born on the small Scottish Hebridean island of Colonsay. An island that resembles a wild paradise with a splendid, seaside landscape. This gin is a tribute to the beauty and unique character of this island. It uses 22 botanicals, most of which are native to the Southern Hebrides. The heart and soul of this citrusy, fruity and tart gin are lemon balm, meadowsweet, sea buckthorn, water mint, heather and bog myrtle. British wheat and Scottish water are used for this gin. It is given depth and body by juniper, coriander, orange zest, cassia bark and angelica root. Enjoy it with a refreshing, not too sweet tonic water.
Scotland – Wild history, warming whisky
Whiskey, bagpipes, kilts – These are the most famous elements of Scottish culture. It has not been conclusively determined who invented whisky. The Scots and Irish both argue that they invented the “water of life.” Food and drink definitely tops the Scottish export categories. Every second, around 40 bottles of whisky are purchased. So it’s hardly surprising that whisky makes up around 80 percent of total food and drink exports.
