10% Off – Secret Garden 50cl Apothecary Rose Gin
The backbone for this gin is Juniper and Coriander where the seeds and berries are lightly crushed, Angelica root and the subtler flavours of the Angelica leaf are used in conjunction with Winter Savory, a plant not dissimilar to Rosemary but with more subtle notes. These four botanicals offer a smooth, elegant and light base gin, to which we add freshly distilled Apothecary Rose. This is one of the most celebrated of all ancient roses and was believed to have been introduced to these shores by knights returning from the Crusades in the 12th or 13th Century. Known to botanists as Rosa gallica officinalis, it has long featured in the Pharmacopoeia and has been prized for its restorative powers and beautiful, bright pink petals. With hints of Turkish delight and brown sugar on the palate and potpourri on the nose this is a gorgeous, smooth gin that is as refreshing as it is beautiful; just add tonic and watch it transform from shimmering gold to bright pink in honour of this noble rose’s petals.
The Sip and Share price is calculated as follows: we take 10% off the RRP and then add postage on. This is because the distillers do not make any money, in fact they make a loss when it comes to postage.
Price includes delivery and will be fulfilled by the distillery. For any issues with delivery or product please contact: https://secretgardendistillery.co.uk/
About the Distiller
In 2012, co-founder Hamish Martin and his wife Liberty bought a derelict 7.5 acre plot of land on the outskirts of Edinburgh, it was there they laid the roots of The Secret Herb Garden.
The couples dream was to create a green space that allowed people to wander freely and enjoy the subtle magic that nature offers. The Secret Herb Garden has over 600 naturally grown and tended varieties of herbs
As a Herbologist, Hamish spent his time experimenting with the botanicals he so carefully and lovingly nurtured. It was from this exploration into the botanicals that he discovered something that you can’t experience by reading books; the true magic of nature.
With this new found knowledge and his past in the drinks industry, Hamish created a range of 100% natural gins, using the botanicals he had grown in his own sacred space.
It was never Hamish and Liberty's intention to create these gins but once they realised the intense flavour of their Lavender and the beautiful colour of their roses, they were unable to keep this secret to themselves.
So, in 2017, they released their range of Secret Garden Gins and now continue to create even more natural products using the botanicals grown in their very own Secret Herb Garden.
