Rock Rose gin gets its wonderful flavour from a carefully selected and put together creation of local and traditional botanicals, each one meticulously chosen for their flavour properties to create the perfect taste.

As well as the traditional Juniper, sourced from Bulgaria and Italy, giving warmth and lemon sherbert notes, Rock Rose contains locally harvested Rhodiola rosea, more commonly known as rose root – imparting a wonderful rose aroma and adding a delicate floral note.  It also uses gorgeously fruity yet crisp Sea Buckthorn berries  and Rowan (Mountain Ash) berries, alongside blaeberries (also called bilberry), cardamon, coriander seed and verbena to name but a few!

Perfect for a wee taste of Caithness from this delicate, floral and clean tasting Gin.

The Dunnet Bay distillery, as its name implies, is located in the spectacular bay of Dunnet, where the freshest of air and the finest of water are in abundance, the Dunnet Bay Distillery thoughtfully and passionately handcraft each exceptional product.

The bespoke pot still, Elizabeth, has been uniquely designed just to create Dunnet Bay spirits. Using a traditional handmade copper head along with botanical vapour basket, it is a small batch process of 500 litres ensuring tremendous care can be applied to achieve best results. After slow, careful distillation, each bottle is filled, hand-waxed, batch numbered and signed before it leaves the distillery.

With an abundance of unique and flavourful plants and botanicals on their doorstep, including Sea Buckthorn, the Rowan tree – sometimes known as Mountain Ash, and Rhodiola rosea, more commonly known as rose root, which is a plant that grows in colder climes – ideal for the fresh breezes of Caithness and that which gives the Gin its name. Over a thousand years ago, the Vikings would harvest wild exposed cliffs to gather Rhodiola rosea. This was thought to give them the extra strength to continue on their long arduous journeys. The distillery harvests and uses the root of the plant, to give the most rose and delicate floral notes to the gin.
