Introducing The Botanist Gin

We find out more about this progressive exploration of botanical flavours delicately blended in one bottle.  


Our host, Rhowan Johannes welcomes brand ambassador of The Botanist Gin, Caitlin Hill to the show. Missed their interview? Listen below:

Conceived distilled and hand crafted by distilling legend Jim McEwan, The Botanist is a super-premium artisanal gin distilled at the Bruichladdich Distillery on the wild Hebridean island of Islay. It is trickle distilled and augmented with a heady harvest of 22 botanicals hand-picked by an expert foraging team from the windswept hills, peat bogs and Atlantic shores of the island.

The botanists seasonally and sustainably forage for these aromatic botanicals by hand from the hills, shores and bogs of this fertile Hebridean island and then carefully dry them in preparation for distillation. The layered complexity of The Botanist Gin is an inspiration to professional mixologists who appreciate the flavour potential of ingredients foraged from their own local environments – to introduce a very personal dimension to this complex spirit.

The Wildest Cocktail In South Africa

Last year The Botanist Gin introduced THE FORAGER, a unique pop-up bar concept, which saw a limited number of pop-up evening events taking place throughout the year in unconventional, secret urban spaces in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

This year The Botanist Gin brings it back, but with a twist. THE FORAGER is now on the hunt for the “Wildest Cocktail” in Cape Town, Johannesburg, and for the first time, Durban. Three of South Africa’s up-and-coming bartenders, in each city, will compete in a challenge to craft the wildest serves, using The Botanist Gin and their own local, hand-foraged botanicals. For three weeks, each cocktail will be available at the venues for members of the
public to experience for themselves.

“This year we are looking for “Wildest Cocktail” in South Africa. We will be working with some of the country’s most promising bartenders to create something special. The best part about this year is that everyone can be involved. The public can visit any of our partnering venues, enjoy the cocktails for themselves and tell us exactly which one they think should win. We are really looking forward to awarding the “Wildest Cocktail in South Africa,”said Tamika Sewnarain, Brand Manager for The Botanist Gin, South Africa.
