Our 11 key botanicals are weighted out by hand before every distillation; this includes a combination of both fresh and dried botanicals.
Rowan Berries, which are foraged locally, help provide the unique, crisp taste of Ben Lomond Gin.
Coriander seeds contain a lot of oil and when it's distilled it has a very complex flavour that is both spicy and citrusy.
Juniper Berries are the underpinning ingredient and the predominant
flavour of bright pine freshness with citrus and pepper spice
The orange peel adds the true citrus element of the gin.
The rose petals have a strong floral aroma which adds another layer of complexity to the overall gin.
The Szechuan Peppercorns add a slight spiciness at the end of the gin which prolongs the after taste of the gin.
Blackcurrants add a subtle sweetness to the overall flavour.
The root of the Iris plant, Orris gives an overall floral note to the gin and acts as a binding elements to bring all the other botanicals together.
The Cassia add a slight spiciness at the end of the gin which prolongs the aftertaste of the gin.
Liquorice Root provides a distinctive sweet note with mild woody tones to the complex mix. This also enhances the mouthfeel of the gin.
Angelica gives a bitter, earthy flavour that again compliments the bitterness of the juniper but also helps to reign in the sweetness of the berries.
