Dunnet Bay Distillery - Thurso
Founder in 2014 by Martin and Claire Murray with the desire to bring a distillery and visitor centre to their hometown of Caithness at the far north tip of mainland Scotland a few miles from John O’Groats. It’s a real family-run operation, and the overall passion to produce high quality seasonal and locally inspired gins is very obvious in all of their range.
This extra-special edition of Rock Rose gin derives from their popular ‘Design a Rock Rose Gin Label’ competition of 2016, which became the wonderful citrus-based Artists’ Edition. At a limited number of bottles, the Artists’ Edition sold out very quickly and they were soon inundated with requests to re-create the fabulous gin.
It was decided to bring it back as a fresher version for 2019 using organic pink grapefruit peel, all lovingly peeled by the RR distillery team! These are added to their botanical basket along and vapour infused along with all the traditional gin botanicals. It is then lightly sweetened with muscovado sugar..
Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
