I've been a gin fan for many years, I worked in a gin bar which had around 70 gins which I got to try them all. Plymouth was my favorite for a vary long time until Rock Rose stumbled into my life. I met a friend who's partner worked for the company.
Rock Rose Gin is made at the Dunnet Bay Distillery all the way up in Caithness, Scotland. This very northerly gin features an alluring botanical selection including locally harvested Rhodiola Rosea, Rowan Berries, Sea Buckthorn, Blaeberries, Verbena, Coriander Seed, Cardamom and Juniper from two different countries - Italy and Bulgaria.
They use a John Dore vapour distillation.
Dunnet Bay Distillery in Scotland have gone and made a Navy Strength edition of their very popular Rock Rose Gin!
The bumped up ABV brings an intensity to the flavour profile, dialling up the pine freshness, the earthy herbaceous elements and the blaeberry juiciness.
This is going to be fun to play with!
