The Misty Isle Gin from Isle of Skye Distillers (on the eponymous Inner Hebridean island) is made using 11 botanicals – juniper, orris root, liquorice root, black cubebs, coriander, grains of paradise, lemon peel, cassia bark, and a secret botanical. This secretive botanical only comes from Skye. Mysterious!
Nose: Liquorice, cracked black pepper, and subtly floral juniper.
Palate: Cassia gives it a spicy start, while lemon and orris develop in the background, balancing the palate.
Finish: Waxy orange peel and fresh juniper warmth.
