Rock Rose Gin

Dunnet Bay Distillers Ltd. is a family run micro distillery based in the village of Dunnet. As a husband and wife team, we designed and built the distillery in keeping with Scottish traditions, to produce gin and vodka. Our goal is to create spirits which reflect the Caithness way. We hand distill slowly, thoughtfully and passionately to create exceptional products

Rock Rose Gin

Each year will herald a new vintage. Like a fine wine, our Caithness botanicals are dependant on our climes, resulting in a truly hand crafted gin that will subtly change year on year, but is still undeniably one of ours.

Rock Rose Gin is our first product, and it is named after our first botanical forage along our Caithness cliffs, where we were shown Rhodiola rosea, a rose in the rocks, introduced to us by a local herbalist. Thousands of years ago, the vikings would pillage these wild exposed cliffs to gather Rhodiola rosea. This was thought to give them extra strength to continue on with their long, arduous journeys.

Our gin uses this 'Rock Rose' and a blend of local and traditional botanicals to create a unique taste from Caithness in the Highlands of Scotland.

In 2015 we will be launching our botanical vodka to the wider market, and also smaller garden editions to the Caithness market.
