The Gin Both
The Gin Bothy is nestled in the Angus Glens of Scotland. Handmade in small batches in our award winning Bothy, our Scottish gin is infused with cinnamon, cloves, mixed spice and sugar. Great on the rocks or with ginger ale, or even served warm as a real winter warmer.
Darnley’s View have created two deliciously different, yet perfectly balanced, small batch London Dry gins. Darnley’s View Original is refreshingly smooth and crisp with primary botanicals of elderflower and lemon, making the perfect G&T and Darnley’s View Spiced is complex with warming botanicals such as cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and goes brilliantly with ginger ale.
The gin is distilled by traditional methods in a double cooper still. The botanicals are distilled individually and ared added to the gin at end end to make the final coupage or blend. The Mediterranean bptanicals used are: juniper, angelica, cardomom, thyme, coriander, rosemary and with a final touch of Valencia citrus fruits.
