Dunnet Bay Distillers Ltd
Unsurprisingly, Dunnet Bay Distillers are located in the spectacular bay of Dunnet where the freshest of air and the purest of water are in abundance.
The goal is to create spirits which reflect the Caithness way. The company hand distil slowly, thoughtfully and passionately to create an exceptional product.
Rock Rose Gin gets its name from the company’s first botanical forage along the cliffs of the Pentland Firth, where they 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.
Dunner Bay Distillers gin uses this “rock rose” and a blend of local and traditional botanicals to create a unique taste from the Highlands of Scotland.
The team distil, bottle, hand wax and sign every bottle before it leaves their wee distillery.
