Rock Rose Smoked Orange Edition

Tasting Notes

Nose

Subtle hints of smoke lie underneath zingy citrus notes.

Palate

The clean pine smoke from Lapsang Souchong tea encapsulates the mouth and as it settles a candied sweet orange rises through.

Finish

The finish is long as the deep rich smoke lingers on the pallet. The fresh citrus notes of lemon verbena and tangerine sage resolve into a sweetness on the back of the tongue.

Rock Rose Smoked Orange Edition

A zesty citrus burst with a delicious smoked tea undertone

Our Smoked Orange Edition is a credit to our distiller, Craig. Martin challenged him to take Rock Rose Gin into exploring an entirely different flavour profile, whilst remaining true to the distinctive notes of our original Scottish spirit.

This release uses fine lapsang souchong tea to deliver smoky notes to enhance zesty organic orange peel. Complemented by tangerine sage and lemon verbena from our geodome, this is a richly complex gin with a bright bonfire nose; a palate that wakes the taste buds.

Rock Rose Smoked Orange Edition will return in November 2022.

Botanicals

  • Lemon Verbena

    The leaves of this perennial, woody shrub have a bright citrus flavour – ideal for adding an extra citrus layer of flavour. Grown in our distillery geodome.

  • Lapsang Souchong Tea

    According to popular story an army delayed the tea harvest in China and the leaves were laid over pine embers to speed up the drying process. This charismatic, smoky tea was created and is now just perfect for our need!

  • Orange

    The humble orange is one of the hero botanicals in our Smoked Orange Edition! We use sweet orange peel in the distillation to complement the smoky notes from the tea.

Reviews

    This gin retains the essence of the Rock Rose experience whilst bringing the deep undertones of the orange. Think marmalade more than orange juice.
    This gives it the hint of the classic cocktail balance of 2 parts sweet to 1 part bitter and I have already used this as the base for rather exquisite Negronis and a more delicate orange bloom martini.
    Nice one, Rock Rose!

    Right up there with the best of Rock Rose gins. I am amazed that I got the chance to secure another two bottles – thank you for the e-mail!
