Rock Rose Gin Summer Edition

Distilled using ingredients from our gardens and rockery to give a different, seasonal taste to Rock Rose Gin.

The challenge, set last year, was to make a citrus style gin using botanicals growing in the distillery garden 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!

Botanicals

  • Lemon Balm

    Melissa, or lemon balm as it is more commonly known, comes from the same family as mint. It is a leafy green herb with a delicious lemony flavour and fragrance. It has been traditionally used to improve mood and cognitive function but we enjoy it for the extra citrus element it provides our Summer Edition with.

  • Pineapple Sage

    A perennial plant grown in our very own geodome. It is a sturdy sage with red, trumpet-shaped flowers and leaves that really do smell of pineapples!

  • Lemon Thyme

    Lemon thyme is a small shrub like herb with tiny leaves. It is a popular aromatic and seasoning herb in the mint family. As our challenge called for a citrus led gin without any peel, the addition of lemon thyme worked perfectly!

We are continuing to send out parcels of joy, but please be aware these may take day a day or two longer to arrive with you.  Martin is manning the distillery all on his lonesome and he can only box up so many orders in a day – despite how much Claire prods him!  We are also trying to do our tiny wee bit to help and have provided our local surgeries and carers with free hand sanitiser during the shortages.
