Rock Rose, Smoked Orange Gin (700ml)
Dunnet Bay Distillery, Rock Rose Gin
Smoked Orange Edition
The Smoked Orange Edition is a credit to Rock Rose distiller, Craig. Martin challenged him to take Rock Rose Gin into exploring an entirely different flavour profile, whilst remaining true to the distinctive notes of its original Scottish spirit.
This release uses fine Lapsang Souchong tea to deliver smoky notes to enhance zesty organic orange peel. Complemented by tangerine sage and lemon verbena from our geodome, this is a richly complex gin with a bright bonfire nose; a palate that wakes the taste buds.
Nose: Subtle hints of smoke lie underneath zingy citrus notes.
Taste: The clean pine smoke from Lapsang Souchong tea excites the tastebuds and, as it settles, a candied sweet orange rises through.
Finish: The finish is long as the deep rich smoke lingers on the palate. The fresh citrus notes of lemon verbena and tangerine sage resolve into a sweetness on the back of the tongue.
About the Distillery
Located in Dunnet Bay near northern most coast of the Scottish mainland, Dunnet Bay Distillery is grounded in an ethos of tradition and sustainability. In 2020, they made headlines for selling their gin in fully recyclable pouches. But the gin has been around far longer than that. Each bottle is hand-filled, individually wax-sealed, batch numbered and hand-signed before it leaves the distillery. Great care is taken throughout the whole process to ensure that only the very best quality products will leave their wee distillery in Dunnet.
