Scottish Gin Club - Atlantic Gin - May 2022

May’s Scottish Gin Club features hails from Scotland’s most westerly distillery, on the Isle of Barra. Atlantic Gin from the Isle of Barra Distillers is a bold Scottish gin with an unmistakeable maritime twist.

The Gin 

A bold and memorable spirit, Atlantic Gin is produced with a range of 17 botanicals – including juniper, liquorice root and locally harvested carragreen seaweed. The carragreen seaweed adds a distinctive note of menthol and just a hint of salt to this award-winning spirit, while the liquorice root contributes a gentle sweetness.

This is a fresh and dry juniper-led gin, complemented by rich herbal notes and a gentle spice. It’s internationally recognised, too, with Silver Awards in both the 2020 IWSC Competition and the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits competition.

The Perfect Serve

Serve over ice, with a premium tonic and a healthy slice of fresh pink grapefruit to garnish.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, Atlantic Gin is fresh with distinctive maritime notes. To taste, it’s dry and juniper-led. To finish, expect herbal notes and a delicate spice.
