Botano gin (pronounced Voh-ta-noh). Originally created as a bespoke one-off gin for a 60th wedding anniversary. The couple had holidayed for years in the beautiful Greek islands, loving everything about the destination: the people, the food, the history, the stunning sights and of course the sunshine! This was the inspiration.
Paul Miller (co-founder of Eden Mill) happened to be on-site when the spirit was being bottled and had to have a taste …! The rest is history because it is now Eden Mill’s first seasonal gin of 2017!
Think bright white and blue from the likes of Santorini and Mykonos and the golden bottle representing sandy beaches. An outer wrap in 3 different Mediterranean inspired patterns; a natural twine twist and (for distillery sales only) a sprig of rosemary as garnish around the neck. Because of the beautifully coloured wrapping, this makes an ideal and ready-made summer gift.
Limited production batch of 4,500 bottles with only 2,000 available during the first 2 weeks. Botano Gin launched for sale at our distillery retail counter on World Gin Day (Saturday 10th June) – and is available online now.
Juniper, Coriander, Black Pepper, Angelica root, Lemon peel, Orange peel, Basil, Rosemary, Dill, Bay Leaves, Parsley, Orris root and Almond Powder
Inspired by the tastes of the Mediterranean, Botano is Greek for ‘Herb’. Infusing a selection of aromatic herbs with zesty lemon and orange peel makes this gin both fresh and fragrant.
This gin is 45%abv.
Serve with a premium light tonic (or neat) over ice and garnish with basil
