Vesperis Pictish Gin (70 cl)
Location: Blackford, Aberdeenshire
The Vesperis Pictish Gin takes the Pictish Vodka flavour profile and adds organic botanicals to create this ultra smooth, balanced artisan gin.
Made using local heather honey, heather blossom and lemon peel, the spirit is then diluted with the freshest Aberdeenshire spring water.
Every bottle of Vesperis has been distilled on site using the pioneering iStill before being bottled, labelled and waxed by hand. The bottles are then signed by the head distiller showing the batch and bottle number.
On the nose, Vesperis Pictish Gin is crisp and clean floral note with subtle hints of coriander freshness and citrus. On the palate, it's juniper forward, with sweetness from the honey, followed by spice, citrus and floral notes. There is a long, pine finish giving a lasting, woody flavour.
The perfect serve
Serve a large measure of gin topped with Mediterranean tonic and garnished with a scoop of pomegranate seeds or pink grapefruit and basil.
