Apothecary Rose Gin 500ml - The Secret Garden Distillery

The Secret Garden Distillery

Apothecary Rose Gin 500ml


The almost sepia-coloured and romantically floral Apothecary Rose Gin is a multi-award winner. It’s made from what is rumoured to be Europe’s largest crop of Apothecary rose, an ancient and medicinal flower that has been used for tinctures and tonics ever since it was brought to the UK by the marauding knights of the Crusades. Displaying hints of potpourri, Turkish delight and brown sugar, it’s a revelation served with premium tonic water and garnished with a raspberry and mint garnish. Sip it and relax into an American Beauty moment because a rose by any other name would NOT smell as sweet.

In 2012, the husband-and-wife team of Hamish and Liberty Martin – an ex-wine merchant with a first-class diploma in Herbology and a trained beekeeper with a penchant for antiques – bought a derelict plot of land at the foot of the Pentland Hills on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Over several years they transformed that wasteland into The Secret Herb Garden, which is now home to over 600 naturally and sustainably grown and tended to plants. Although it was never their intention, in 2017 they launched an acclaimed range of 100% natural flavour gins, which rapidly became bestsellers at Harvey Nichols. The Secret Garden Distillery, formerly known as The Old Curiosity Distillery, creates spirits that are deeply rooted in nature. All the botanicals used, from the juniper to the signature flowers, are hand-tended, handpicked, air-dried and lovingly infused. There are no added sugars, artificial colourings, flavourings or additives, this is gin as nature intended.

Committed to reducing their carbon footprint and their impact on the environment, The Secret Garden Distillery’s labels are now made from 30% grass, which cuts the energy and water consumption required and the CO2 produced while making the paper. They use no chemicals whatsoever, choosing to heal the plants they grow with other plants. The security seals on their bottles are now fully biodegradable, and all shipping materials are recyclable. So, this is a brand working hand in hand with nature.
