WILLIAM KERR'S BORDERS GIN 43% VOL 70CL
William Kerr's Borders Gin is the inaugural gin release from The Borders Distillery. The beautifully designed label showcases the botanicals from near and far, which include Juniper, Cassia Bark, Orange Peel and Liquorice Root.
In the early 19th Century, William Kerr, the talented yet humble botanist, leaves his home town of Hawick in the Scottish Borders, to explore The Orient and the Indian Sub-Continent, seeking new species of plant to send back to Europe. Kerr’s Gin celebrates the man himself and the explorer, adventurer and discoverer in all of us.
The Borders Distillery is the first Scotch Whisky distillery in the Borders since 1837. William Kerr’s Gin is made at the distillery using their own spirit, which means it’s 100% made in the Scottish Borders. The distillery add their own blend of botanicals to their specially commissioned Carter Head Still to create a smooth gin with flavours of citrus and spice against a fruity malt backdrop.
Nose: A creamy, floral nose with plenty of dried orange and coriander seed citrus, juniper and a prickle of baking spice.
Palate: A little liquorice and honeyed sweetness combines with herbaceous notes of cassia and coriander as well as some lemon peel.
Finish: Quite short and impressively delicate.
