Rock Rose Gin - Original Edition

Rock Rose Gin

Flavourful and fresh, zesty yet berryful with a long smooth finish.

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.

After fifty five experiments by Martin & Claire the final recipe was chosen to give a wee taste of Caithness and the very first batch was distilled on the 17th August 2014.

41.5% Alc Vol. - 700ml

Rock Rose Gin

Tasting Notes


A delicate bouquet of rose, mixed with deeper cardamom and a touch of citrus.


Fruity berries merge with a floral nose to give a full-bodied, rounded gin. Bright notes ping as the juniper comes forward.


The sharpness of the sea buckthorn emerges, but once again is rounded off by berries and a juniper heart. Smooth sherbet lemon notes create a lingering finish.

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…

Rock Rose Gin


  • Sea Buckthorn

    Sea buckthorn is a silvery leafed shrub that grows along the coastline and produces clusters of vibrant orange berry-like fruit, soft, juicy and rich in oils. The fruit is highly celebrated for its high vitamin C content, around fifteen times more than an orange!

    We, however, use the berries for their taste – gorgeously fruity yet crisp.

  • Rhodiola rosea

    Rhodiola rosea is a plant that thrives in colder climes making it ideal for the fresh breezes of Caithness. We use the root of the plant which adds a delicate floral note to our gin.

    Over a thousand years ago, the Vikings would harvest wild exposed cliffs to gather Rhodiola rosea. This was thought to give them the extra strength to continue on their long arduous journeys.

  • Juniper Berries

    Juniper is the predominant botanical – otherwise it just wouldn’t be gin! We select our juniper from two different countries. Both junipers are subjected to a vapour infusion process and the Bulgarian juniper gives lemon sherbert notes, whilst the Italian juniper gives a real warmth and depth to the flavour of the gin.

    I was gifted this gin over the Xmas period. I followed the recommended perfect serve (lots of ice, tonic, and a curl of orange with a sprig of rosemary). It was absolutely stunning. I loved the crisp clean taste with a subtle citrus flavour. Perfect!

    In August 2020 through Craft Gin Club I was introduced to Rock Rose Gin, wow‼️What a fabulous discovery, I now have 7 of their Gins in my collection, my favourite is definitely Citrous Coastal Edition created for CGC, closely followed by Spring Edition, And the Grapefruit Old Tom.
    I have joined the monthly refill pouch Club with Rock Rose and it’s fabulous.
    In spite of having 46 Craft Gins in my overall collection now Rock Rose are definitely my favourite Distillery ❤️.

    I’m a big gin lover, and from the look and feel of the bottle and the description, this exceeds expectations! Lovely floral smell with a sweet but subtle berry taste. Goes fab with the tonic, but I personally love it with a lemonade too! Would highly recommend and will definitely be stocking up.
