The story of South African Inverroche Gin began in 2007, when mother and son duo Lorna and Rohan Scott, began experimenting with a 1.7L copper pot still affectionately known as “Mini Meg”. Working through various ideas, learning different techniques and allowing the process to grow organically, four years of enthusiastic tinkering and research ensued.
One of the key areas of development was to truly understand which botanicals could be used to create their trilogy of Gins, in particular, how best harness their key ingredient, Fynbos.
Inverroche Verdant Gin –
Verdant is distilled with Fynbos derived from the mountainous regions of South Africa (which has beautiful floral top notes with earthy undertones). Unlike with the classic, instead of going straight to bottling, the hearts cut undergoes a second Fynbos infusion. Not only does this add an extra layer of flavour, but it brings a golden-green hue.
Inverroche Gin Verdant has a more delicate floral aroma, almost reminiscent of elderflower and chamomile.
