Mostly asleep on the job.
A dog’s olfactory bulb is 40 times bigger than ours, making their sense of smell incredibly powerful. However, food safety regulations won’t allow him to be used as our official ‘noser’ sadly! Please note the loss of his eye was not an on-site incident – he had a rather unfortunate meeting with a cat many years ago.
Our precious botanicals are carefully picked and prepared before Elizabeth, our traditional copper pot still, works her magic; the vapours pass over the basket where our botanicals will impart their wonderful flavours creating the delicious taste that is Rock Rose gin.
Martin will cast his watchful eye over the whole process, using only the heart of the distillation and discarding the heads and tails, to perfect the finest taste for our spirits. We carefully hand fill and wax seal every bottle, before it is numbered and signed at the distillery. Great care is taken throughout the whole process to ensure only the very best will leave our wee distillery in Dunnet!
