The backbone for the case gin is Juniper and Coriander where the seeds and berries are lightly crushed, Angelica root and also the more subtle 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 Damask Rose. This is an ancient and true Rose, highly perfumed and prized for its heady aroma for millennia - by distilling the petals fresh you can capture its pure essence, soul, allowing for the most clean and precise rose aroma to be delivered to the palate possible.
The dried hand harvested petals are used to lightly infuse this then creates a pale golden spirit that once tonic is added turns to the most powerful pink that brings the real colour of the petal back in a liquid form, truly a miracle of nature.
On drinking this beautifully balanced and elegant gin you can understand why this Rose stands as a beacon for light, love and beauty - a rare opportunity to allow the palate to rejoice and live in awe of the beauty, power and magnificence of such an amazing flower.

About the Producer
The Old Curiosity Distillery was founded in a barn full of curious things, set in the lowland of their enchanting botanical nursery nestled at the foot of the Pentland hills just outside of Edinburgh. The Old Curiosity Distillery comes from a love of herbology. They grow, pick, dry and infuse all of the incredible herbs by hand. They then harness the magical properties of the flowers and herbs through a natural distillation process, creating glorious floral gin that is 100% natural, with no additives, flavours or colouring, just nature distilled. It is from this love of herbs, and their knowledge of fine spirits that the Old Curiosity Distillery was born, bringing you unique spirits that harness the wonderful abilities of natural botanicals. In 2012 co-founder Hamish Martin and his wife Liberty bought a derelict plot of land in which they laid the roots of the secret herb garden.
