My name is Martin and I live in Scotland. I love fine things in life, such as gourmet food, travelling around the world and, last but not least, whisky (naturally, I’m partial to a tipple of whiskey or bourbon as well). I have tasted hundreds of whiskies during the recent years and I finally decided to share my experience.

    Nice timing that you should review this. I saw it around and was seriously considering buying it, even though I don’t drink gin at all. Would you consider buying it in lieu of a bottle of whisky?

      If you ever get a chance to try some, Rogue Distillery’s Pink Spruce Gin is top notch as a sipper. They age it in used Pinot Noir barrels for a little while, which adds a really nice fruity layer on top of the usual gin botanicals and gives it an almost whiskey-like quality.

      Hey Ryan,

      If you’re intrigued by gin, I definitely would. A cool G&T is perfect for the summer, and I personally find that the Botanist is equally well suited in a G&T as it is to drinking neat. I really like it, and it’s not too expensive. In fact, I’m going to go make myself one right this minute.

      If you end up buying it I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    Having visited Islay in April 2012, I was surprised to find gin on the famous whisky isle. I have to say it is the nicest gin I have tasted. Only wish I had purchased more than one bottle! I would recommend it to both gin and non-gin drinkers. It is truly delicious and a pleasure on the tastebuds. If you see a bottle on sale, buy it. You will not regret it. Cheers x
