Garnish Island Irish Gin
750ml | SKU 84410
7 Available
A handcrafted small batch gin that takes inspiration from the lush Italian gardens on West Cork's Garnish Island. The recipe includes locally foraged botanicals some of which include hibiscus, iris, rose, rosemary and thyme.
Soft, lingering glow on the finish with herbaceous and citrus notes and just a hint of spice.
Bright floral aromas of iris, rose and hibiscus marry beautifully with hints of rosemary and thyme.
Supplier notes

It’s a huge bouquet of mixed stems on the nose, to the point where it’s tough to pick any out specifically. Hibiscus seems the most forward, though the thyme element definitely muscles its way to the front of the line, too.

The palate conceals few surprises and plays its hand fairly open. The herbal notes are more forward here, tempering the florals significantly. Thyme and rosemary make an impact, with the juniper becoming fairly dense toward the finish. In this way, it drinks a bit upside down: lighter botanicals first, then juniper pushing its way to the front. The finish is warming and herbal, with a bold green-ness to it all. Lovely stuff, and at a good price. A-
