The Geologist Gin
The Geologist Gin is inspired by Hugh Miller, a famous Geologist that resided in Cromarty from 1802 – 1865. The bottle pays tribute to a man who embraced the age of Scottish Enlightenment.
Sumptuous, beautifully balanced and boasting a lovely blend of cocoa bean, vanilla, and grains of paradise, all infused delicately with orris root and juniper. The nose leads with juniper, warm citrus and cinnamon. Palate is sweet and viscous with a pleasant earthy bitterness and warming spice. The long finish ends with touches of cinnamon, vanilla and liquorice.
The original Cromarty Distillery dates back to 1826, founded by John McIntosh when the Scottish Highland town was a major port importing hemp from the Baltic as well as exporting the produce of the farms on the Black Isle.
