The Botanists of the Botanist Gin on Tuesday 23rd July 2019

Dr Richard and Mavis Gulliver were the original botanists for The Botanist Gin which is distilled on the Hebridean Isle of Islay. The Gullivers worked with master distiller Jim McEwan to add gin to the range of whiskies produced by Bruichladdich Distillery. Three years of research, extensive foraging and collaboration with Jim led to the first distillation in 2010. The gin sold so well that the global drinks company, Remy Cointreau, bought the distillery. Until retiring in 2017, the Gullivers collected and processed all the botanicals for every distillation. This interactive talk also examines 22 Islay plants and there will be a sampling of The Botanist Gin. Tickets available online at https://shropshiresummerschool.co.uk/
