10% Off – Secret Garden, 50cl Pink Elderflower and Jasmine Gin
Nose: Delicate and floral
Taste: Crisp dry base with strong floral notes
Finish: A fresh, floral dry finish
The Elder tree is one of the most sacred things that grow on the British Isles, steeped in mystery and folklore and worshipped by our ancestors since we first arrived on these shores. And rightly so: an Elder tree outside your door was reckoned to keep evil influences away - the Elder Mother living in its trunk saw to that - and we have used her bark, leaves, flowers and berries to treat every human ailment you can think of (and plenty you can’t) for centuries. Jasmine is renowned in Eastern history thanks to its unmatchable fragrance; wearing a jasmine flower in your hair is part of every tradition and ceremony from cradle to grave but to us in the West its beguiling scent is synonymous with desire. To match these noblest of plants we distilled them over our crisp dry base, carefully balancing the delicate aromas and flavours to create a sensual and intriguing drink that feels like the delicate kiss of a lover on the back of the neck on a summer’s day. Enjoy this most curious of gins with the lightest tonic you can find and, as always, enjoy it responsibly.

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.
