Pom Gin

By Jane Carswell


This drink was named by Kathryn, after she created it for The Botanist gin tour. The ‘pom’ is for pomegranate, the principal ingredient in grenadine, although our ‘All-Islay Grenadine’ has never been anywhere near a pomegranate and uses local seasonal ingredients instead. The irony!

It’s basically a Clover Club cocktail, 2/3 gin 1/3 grenadine, shaken.

  • 40ml Botanist Gin
  • 20ml Grenadine
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • half an egg white


Shake all the ingredients without ice for 30 seconds, then with ice until thoroughly chilled. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish – we used a lavatera flower (mallow family) from the garden here at the distillery.
