The Botanist Gin is distilled at the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay, the southernmost island of the Inner Southern Hebrides of Scotland. It is made using 22 hand-foraged botanicals from the area and as a result, it is an extremely versatile base spirit that provides a number of flavor profiles (herbal, sweet, citrus, floral, or aromatic). For those who prefer cocktails with a savoury twist, The Heirloom uses tomatoes and sea salt for a tangy yet crisp drink.
—1.5oz The Botanist Gin
—.5oz Dry Vermouth
—1oz Tomato water
—Pinch of sea salt
To make tomato water, blend one tomato and stain water through a cheesecloth. Add all ingredients to a mixing glass. Add ice, stir and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a lemon peel.
