The Botanist, Islay’s first and only dry gin will be offering a wild experience like no other at TASTE Festive this year, bringing Islay to London. Treat your senses to a unique gin, handcrafted and distilled on the Isle of Islay.

The Botanist is a truly exceptional gin and a representation of the region’s progressive heritage. Nine classic gin botanicals are augmented by 22 local herbs and flowers, all foraged responsibly by hand from the hills, shores and bogs of the Hebridean Island by botanical scientists.

Whether it’s a classic The Botanist and Tonic that takes your fancy or a festive foraged cocktail, The Botanist will be offering a host of seasonal serves at their bar – bringing Islay to TASTE Festive from Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th November.

Explore the botanicals of The Botanist Gin and pick your own garnish with The Botanist’s foraging table, which will display a selection of botanicals – a Taste of London Festive Edition exclusive.

The Botanist’s Brand Ambassador, Abigail Clephane will also be hosting a series of masterclasses. Expect interactive masterclasses with gin tasting and foraged food parings, created by The Botanist chef, Craig Grozier. Abigail will also be joined by professional forager John Rensten, to talk all things about foraging.

Throughout TASTE Festive, visitors will also be able to purchase The Botanist as well as limited edition gifts exclusively at the event**.
 

*Masterclass tickets priced at £10, limited to 20 people per session.

Thursday 16th November 2017 - Sunday 19th November 2017
