Rock Rose Gin, Launching Spring 2014
The distillery building is underway, we have carefully researched and chosen our copper still with botanical basket and have hand selected our precious Caithness botanicals. We are getting ready to distill!
Martin and Claire are Dunnet Bay Distillers Ltd and are getting ready to launch Rock Rose Gin in spring 2014!
Unsurprisingly, we are located in the spectacular bay of Dunnet, Caithness where the freshest of air and purest of water are in abundance.
Our goal is to create spirits which reflect the Caithness way. We hand distill slowly, thoughtfully and passionately to create an exceptional product.
Each year will herald a new vintage. Like a fine wine, our Caithness botanicals are dependant on our climes resulting in a truly hand crafted gin that will subtly change year on year, but is still undeniably Rock Rose.
Rock Rose Gin was named after our first botanical forage with Brian V. Lamb, MCPP along our Caithness cliffs, where he discovered Rhodiola rosea, a rose in the rocks. Thousands of years ago, the vikings would harvest these wild exposed cliffs to gather Rhodiola Rosea. This was thought to give them extra strength to continue on with their long, arduous journeys.
Our gin uses this 'Rock Rose' and a blend of local and traditional botanicals to create a unique taste from Caithness in the Highlands of Scotland.
