M.S. Walker, a New England-based national importer and distributor of fine wines and spirits, has launched Garnish Island Gin in the U.S. Market. This small batch gin is crafted at West Cork Distillers in Skibbereen, Ireland, by Deirdra Bohane, Ireland’s only female Master Gin Distiller.
The team at West Cork Distillers hand-built a custom copper pot still exclusively for the production of Garnish Island Gin. The gin, itself, is inspired by the Italian Botanical Gardens of Garnish Island, located off the southern coast of Ireland. The botanicals have been carefully selected to create a classic Gin that exhibits light floral notes of hibiscus, iris, and rose matching beautifully with rosemary and thyme. This is complimented by luscious hints of dark chocolate and strawberry. This exotic Gin has a soft lingering glow on the finish.
A deliciously elegant gin that perfectly captures the unique, exotic character of Garnish Island in Bantry Bay. Carefully chosen botanicals that capture the essence of the island are infused to release their essential oils and then slowly distilled in small batches in our pot still. Bright floral aromas of iris, rose and warming hibiscus marry beautifully with hints of rosemary and thyme. Enjoy the soft lingering glow on the finish with notes of citrus, cacao and just a hint of spice.
