In celebration of Burns Night on 25th January 2017, the multi-award winning Dunnet Bay Distillery, the UK’s most northerly mainland distillery, is releasing a special edition gin “The Lassies Toast”. The gin is inspired by the Moorland tea that Robert Burns is reputed to have enjoyed and is made to a unique recipe designed in-house.
With the “Toast to the Lassies” the traditional way to celebrate the end of the Burns Night meal, this wee dram has been designed as a drink for the lassies. It features bilberry leaves, strawberry leaves, heather tops, speedwell and wild thyme, ingredients found in the Moorland tea recipe.
Following the popularity of a limited run last year, Dunnet Bay Distillery have now bottled the “The Lassies Toast” gin into a collectible and striking red glass bottle and each will be hand signed, numbered and sealed at the distillery. But you’ll have to be quick to snap one up, as just 250 bottles will be released, available exclusively from the Dunnet Bay Distillery website.
The Lassies Toast Gin is available now online at £34.
