Jim McEwan spent 38 years with Bowmore and held every job there from apprentice cooper to Distillery Manager. In 2001, he left Bowmore to reopen Bruichladdich as their Master Distiller. Along with the dozens of single malt bottlings he created, he wanted to distill a gin that reflects his home of Islay, the island he loves.
A progressive exploration of the Botanical heritage of our Isle of Islay. The spirit is satin smooth gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before. A totally seductive experience. The aromas explode like an olfactory Aurora Borealis filling the senses with meteorites of smell sensations as they explode from the glass.
"The juniper certainly falls to a background player here, but this gin, even with the dozens of botanicals used, doesn't get muddied. This is a gin that would work wonders in a sour or Collins preparation." - Stephanie Moreno, Distiller
