10% Off – Secret Garden, 50cl Geranium & Mallow Gin
Nose: Warm tropical air, fresh green tea and floral tones
Taste: Rich, heady but beautifully balanced, soft texture Gin
Finish: A delicate, floral finish
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, it is to this that we then add the freshly distilled Geraniums - this is a plant that is so rich in aromas, with scents of warm tropical air, fresh green tea and floral tones that are reminiscent of roses and jasmine intermingled - these distilled flowers are then added to the gin where all these characteristics are enriched and enhanced to produce a rich, heady but beautifully balanced, soft texture and flavoured gin.
Then the hand-harvested and dried Mallow flowers are infused, these flowers can only be collected when the sun is out and so opening the flowers completely (which in Scotland isn’t as many days as we would like!) to give a nearly clear spirit which then turns the most elegant pink when tonic is added. This is a gin that allows the senses to be completely stimulated and the palette to be in awe of the beauty, elegance, power and grace of the flavour of nature - truly a drink to savour.

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.
