We are Dunnet Bay Distillers. Unsurprisingly, we are located in the spectacular bay of Dunnet where the freshest of air and the purest of water are in abundance.
Our goal is to create spirits which reflect the Caithness way. We hand distil slowly, thoughtfully and passionately to create an exceptional product.
Rock Rose Gin gets its name from our first botanical forage along the cliffs of the Pentland Firth, where we were introduced to Rhodioloa rosea, a rose in the rocks. Thousands of years ago, the Vikings would forage wild exposed cliffs like these to gather Rhodiola rosea. This was thought to give them the extra strength to continue on with their long, arduous journeys.
Our gin uses this “rock rose” and a blend of local and traditional botanicals to create a unique taste from the Highlands of Scotland.
We distil, bottle, hand wax and sign every bottle before it leaves our wee distillery.
