Taking the intricate craft of distillation to new heights, The Botanist has a rich, mellow taste and a citrus freshness to stimulate the taste buds. From apple mint, coriander and orange and lemon peel, to honey, coconut and wild mint, the spirit is a delectable expression of the heart and soul of its home, Islay.

The foraged botanicals found in The Botanist are etched in Latin around the outside of the mixing glass, mirroring the embossed etchings on the gin’s glass bottle.

Experiment with a selection of seasonal garnishes, such as a sprig of holly, seasonal orange peel, spicy cinnamon and a sprinkle of cloves, or create something completely new and unique.

The Botanist limited edition gift pack is available from £34.99 and available at all specialist retailers including Master Of Malt.


  1. It tastes like Scotch but there’s something different about it. After drinking it I realized it’s a blend, for the grain element is married flawlessly into it. Full bodied and pleasant, 51.4% but you wouldn’t tell that from the nose or undiluted taste. Add a bit of water and it will release some aromas that weren’t there before.
    I admit, I approached this one with skepticism, “yeah Japanese, what do they know” and I was thought a lesson: Japanese can turn anything into art.

    This one is really special, even if it’s sold in 500ml bottles.a

  2. Thanks for the comments Ruou, it certainly is a work of art! Agreed also on adding just a touch of water to release those aromas – wonderful.
