For the house of botanicals maple gin, we use the same base as with their old tom gin. This gin is distilled in London with juniper berries, angelica root, orris root, coriander seed, cassia bark, almond, orange peel and lemon peel, before being shipped to the house of botanicals in Aberdeen where saffron, chamomile flowers and spicy ginger root are added post distillation, before flavouring further and lightly sweetening with maple syrup.
Nose: straw yellow. Juniper and bright citrus flavours dominate with an underlying note of warm spice.
Palate: buttery mouthfeel, with bright, fresh notes of juniper and pine predominant. Balanced with warm orange citrus, vanilla, chamomile and subtle hints of maple and fudge throughout.
Finish: long, clean and refreshing with a touch of butterscotch.
