World Gin Day! AND A GIVEAWAY from Rock Rose Gin

World Gin Day! AND A GIVEAWAY from Rock Rose Gin

I am a big Gin lover,  in fact a cold G&T is possibly one of my most favourite drinkies! I also don’t believe in that old adage ‘mothers ruin.’ In fact I think is makes me a better person :-) And guess what June 11th 2016 is World Gin Day – so there’s your excuse!

Anyway I was approached by the lovely people at Rock Rose Gin to do a review, errrmmm yes of course, I know my gins I do, years of practice.

Firstly the bottle is divine, its ceramic and has the most beautiful design – serious bottle envy, so pretty! It is handcrafted in Scotland!

Rock Rose Gin has gained  accolades galore since it was launched last year. It is hard to describe in words its flavour, but I’ll try, it is fresh, zesty but berryful. This is  thanks to a carefully selected collection of local and traditional botanicals, each one meticulously chosen to create the perfect taste. In fact, its name comes from one of these botanicals, the Rhodiola rosea (a rose in the rocks), which was discovered on the distillery’s first botanical forage along the Caithness cliffs and which adds a delicate floral note to the gin. It’s simply yum….

Rock Rose Gin is available from www.dunnetbaydistillers.co.uk and selected retailers, with full details on the website

Rock Rose Gin RRP £34
