There are dozens of winter gin spirits that are crafted with seasonal ingredients that help to create flavors that are warm and comforting. For the winter season this year, Dunnet Bay Distillers created Rock Rose The Seasonal Editions Winter Gin with an unusual feature ingredient.
Like its classic Rose Rose, Dunnet Bay Distillers' Rock Rose The Seasonal Editions Winter Gin features rhodiola rosea, rowan berries and juniper, but also spruce tips, making it one of the only spirits of its kind to be flavored with Christmas trees. To make the special-edition gin, Dunnet Bay Distillers describes that is gardener collected baskets of spruce tips the previous season.
The addition of spruce is said to give the seasonal gin product "delightful earthy and slightly citrusy notes."
