Scottish Gin Club January 2024 - Isle of Coll

Isle of Coll | Gorse Flower Gin

Isle of Coll Distillery produce award-winning Scottish Gin and Vodka, crafted in small batches from locally foraged Hebridean island botanicals!


Coll is a remote island in the Hebrides – a chain of islands off the west coast of Scotland. It measures 13 miles by 3 miles and has a population of around 200.



"Building on the great reception we received for our Hebridean Gin, we decided to create a flavoured gin. The island is full of inspiration and as the gorse bloomed all over the island, with their vibrant yellow flowers and beautiful scent, we realized that this was would be a perfect flavour for our gin.”

Isle of Coll Gorse Flower Gin is a classic dry gin recipe, combining both local and exotic botanicals together with locally foraged gorse flowers. The result is exquisite - a smooth gin with the gorse flowers adding a floral accent with hints of vanilla, almond and coconut.



Tasting Notes

Nose: Delicate aromas of gorse flower, juniper, lemon peel, heather flower and sea kelp. Palate: Light and incredibly smooth on the palate with citrus accents and soft hints of coconut, almond and vanilla.

Finish: The gentle floral notes are balanced with botanicals, local and exotic, for a refreshing dry finish.

Perfect serve: Best serve is over ice, with a light tonic and your favourite garnish (we'd recommend pink grapefruit). This perfectly highlights the flavour and bouquet of the gorse flower.
