Last week a bottle of Rock Rose gin arrived at my house, all the way from Dunnet Bay Distillery. Not the original kind though, this time Martin and Claire have launched a spring edition.

It comes in their classic ceramic bottle but with a beautiful green and yellow twist, perfect for spring.

It’s been a very gin focused couple of months with the recent Cambridge Gin Festival. I wasted no time in opening up the bottle that very evening to give it a try. The sun was shining and the picnic benches in the garden of our flat were empty. There was really no excuse not to sample the gin.

The gin contains sycamore sap, dandelion and coltsfoot. It has a smooth, fresh flavour and I can clearly pick out hints of liquorice. It has a slightly sweet kick to it which makes it very easy to drink on it’s own.

If you prefer a longer drink simply pour in a big glug of tonic water and add sprig of coriander to garnish. If you’re restrained enough to let your drink sit for a few minutes, the coriander flavour will infuse the gin. This also goes down very easily and is the perfect addition to a spring BBQ or an afternoon relaxing in the sunshine.

If you fancy giving Rock Rose Spring edition a try you better move fast. It’s limited edition and is sure to sell out fast. P and I are both really enjoying this editing of Rock Rose gin, it’s a winner in our books.
