Rock Rose gin gets its wonderful flavour from a carefully selected and put together creation of local and traditional botanicals. Each one meticulously chosen for their flavour properties to create the perfect taste.

Rock Rose is one of the finest Gins I have had the privilege of tasting, easily challenging the more established marques. Definitely worthy of the awards and recognition it has already received. Thank you for the experience…
This extra special edition of Rock Rose gin derives from our 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 we were soon inundated with requests to re-create the fabulous gin.
We decided to bring it back as a fresher version for 2019 using organic pink grapefruit peel, all lovingly peeled by our distillery team! These are added to our botanical basket along and vapour infused along with all our traditional gin botanicals. It is then lightly sweetened with muscovado sugar.

Our Old Tom was created using fresh, organic pink grapefruit peel and muscovado sugar to give wonderful fresh citrus flavour with a beautiful sweetness.
This limited edition is the second in our Creative Collection Series – each one with a uniquely designed label featuring works commissioned from artists based in the Scottish Highlands.
We first distilled this as a special edition gin for the Craft Gin Club in 2014 and it was a real favourite so we decided to bring it back as part of this fabulous series!
After giving local watercolour artist, Liz O’Donnell, the very vague brief of ‘apple and lavender’ she produced this beautiful painting capturing the gin’s very essence.

With the “Toast to the Lassies” the traditional way to celebrate the end of the Burns Night meal, this wee dram has been designed as a drink for the lassies. It features bilberry leaves, strawberry leaves, heather tops, speedwell and wild thyme, ingredients found in the Moorland tea recipe.

The gin is inspired by the Moorland tea that Robert Burns is reputed to have enjoyed and is made to a unique recipe designed in-house.
Our hero botanical in the Winter Edition is spruce tips which Hanna, our gardener, collected basketfuls of in December last year. The Winter Edition has been created with thoughts of bracing walks, roaring fires and dark nights in mind. The original Rock Rose elements have been scaled down to allow the delightful earthy and slightly citrusy notes from the spruce tips to shine through.

Hanna, our lovely gardener and ad-hoc distiller, has been very busy creating our fabulous new range of liquid garnishes. Much like adding a wee curl of orange or sprig of rosemary to your g&t, these have been designed to complement and add another dimension to our range of gins!
The first in our liquid garnish range is the wonderful Coriander & Lime, which works tremendously well with our Spring Edition enhancing the lovely crisp, fresh notes!

Found on the banks of Thurso River, Holy Grass gives this Vodka a wonderful, unique taste. Holy Grass (old name hierochloe borealis/ordorata new name Anthoxanthum nitens) was used for basket weaving and was used on church floors to give a sweet, vanilla smell when walked over.

Brave and distinctive. This vodka from the freezer will surprise you!
Beautifully decorated with etched grass to represent the Holy Grass botanical. A blue serpent curls around the bottom of the glass to be seen whilst enjoying a sip!
The higher ABV version of Rock Rose gives a strong warm pine release at the front of the drink with notes of lemon sherbert. The middle feel of the drink – very bold berries from the blaeberries, rowan and hawthorn. These give way to the deeper earthier notes that are hidden in the original Rock Rose, such as angelica and orris.

My gin to savour in the winter months. The juniper takes me back to summer walks in Dunnet forest. Excels in a negroni.
Our Autumn Edition has been distilled using lots of locally grown botanicals as well as our traditional Rock Rose botanicals. It is bursting with blackberries and raspberries from Caithness Summer Fruits and blaeberries from the Dunnet area. Grown in our very own geodome, Vietnamese coriander and nasturtium flowers add to the spice of the gin.

A sprig of basil complements the blueberries or to bring out the spice try with a nasturtium flower!
The challenge, set last year, was to make a citrus style gin using botanicals growing in the distillery gardens and with no peels! Lots of discussions and research took place with Hanna, our gardener, and she planted, harvested and dried the botanicals that have gone into our Summer Edition.
The botanicals include lemon balm, clover, lemon thyme, pineapple sage, meadowsweet and elderflower!

We use the following botanicals to help give a cool, fresh taste. Just like a spring day in Caithness! Gorse Flowers: Bringing a gorgeous coconut like aroma to the distillation. Dandelion: Lovely earthy, liquorice flavours come to the fore and help balance out the sweetness. Coltsfoot: Once used in confectionary. Coltsfoot from the distillery gardens help provide more sweetness to the gin.
We also increase the cardamom and water mint to help balance these ingredients and bring a freshness.

Contemporary artist Lindsey Gallacher created this unique artwork on a scratchboard layered with china clay and coated with India ink. The image, which shows a Caithness “wifey” making clootie dumpling in her kitchen, was then meticulously etched out using fine points and scalpels.
Clootie Dumpling gin is made in Elizabeth, our vapour infusion still to extract the botanical flavours and create a delicious gin inspired by a traditional Scottish pudding. Actual clootie dumplings, made by Claire’s mam, are placed in the vapour basket along with juniper, raisins and the additional spices of nutmeg and allspice.
