It’s been well documented on this blog – and across social media – that my Husband and I love gin. It’s our drink of choice and as much as we enjoy drinking gin based cocktails you really cannot beat a classic gin and tonic. We love finding new gins to try so when we were sent a bottle of Rock Rose Premium Scottish Gin to try we couldn’t wait to get pouring!
The Rock Rose Premium Scottish Gin is made at the Dunnet Bay Distillers in Scotland and the first batch was only distilled in August 2014 – so it’s still pretty new as far as gin is concerned. The distillery experimented with botanicals to find just the right blend and ended up with a mix of juniper berries, rhodiola rosea, sea buckthorn, rowan berries and a few other things to make a taste that is fresh and zesty, full of berries and wonderfully smooth to drink.
Rock Rose went perfectly with our usual tonic and Hubby and I both really enjoyed it – it was the perfect gin and tonic! We’re looking forward to drinking more of it as the evenings get lighter, the days get warmer and we can sit outside once the children are in bed, talking about our day and enjoying some time together – all with a G&T.
We’ll also be experimenting, making cocktails and drinking Rock Rose with friends. It’s the perfect drink to enjoy socially and I know it will feature a lot in the coming months.
Disclosure: We were sent the above product for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.
