Last weekend, in celebration of World Gin Day, a small corner of WIP was transformed into a nocturnal garden for one enchanting evening curtesy of The Botanist Gin.
A recent addition to WIP’s line up of spirits, The Botanist experience was curated by Chee Kin Yong, Key Account Manager at Rémy Cointreau who explained that the number 22 on the 1.5 litre bottle referred to the local botanicals hand foraged on the Isle of Islay which augment the nine classic gin botanicals to give the only Islay Dry Gin it’s exclusive character. And Mdm. Jacqueline, one of the three winners of WIP’s May lucky draw went home with her own bottle of The Botanist Gin.
Throughout the night, we were given the opportunity to try their hand at concocting their own cocktails or having one made for them at the personalized artisan cocktail bar. The drinks menu for the night included imaginative cocktails like the Sweet Spot and Better Bitter.
The Botanist Gin is the only Islay Gin, nine classic Gin Botanicals are augmented by 22 local herbs and flowers. The result is a gin as much for the minds as the palate; a thinking person’s gin, a roller coaster botanical odyssey in a glass.
The Botanist Gin will continue to feature prominently in WIP promotions, packages and cocktails. So, anyone who missed out on World Gin Day can get their own exclusive experience of The Botanist at WIP!
