Mey Selections Traditional Scottish Gin
HRH Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay launched the Mey Selections initiative in 2005 to help local businesses in Caithness, Ross & Cromarty and Sutherland form closer connections between farmers, fine food producers and customers. The collection features some of the finest quality food ranging from biscuits, cakes, cheese, marmalade, honey and smoked salmon all the way through to gin & whisky.
This gin is distilled using botanicals from within five miles of the Castle of Mey by Dunnet Bay Distillers. The botanicals used include sweet cicely, which brings lovely liquorice and aniseed notes the gin, bog myrtle, giving a sweet herbal flavour and finally apple mint which is a slightly sweeter mint to taste. Their bespoke pot still, Elizabeth, has been uniquely designed just to create their spirits, working her magic and producing a floral gin with warmth and depth of flavour. A marvellous gift for any occasion.
