Botano Gin was original dreamed up as the perfect wedding toast. The couple had spent many holidays in the beautiful Greek islands and adored everything around them: the people, the food, the history, the landscape and, of course, the sunset.
The step from inspiration to production was rapid and destiny made sure that Paul Miller was in the right place at the right time for the bottling of the Gin. He insisted upon tasting it, and once he did, it won him over immediately. We don’t know the details of what came next, but at that moment the perfect wedding toast became the first seasonal Gin from the Scottish company. This is Eden Mill Botano, the Gin inspired by the Greek islands.
This special limited edition of 4500, of which only 200 will appear on the Portuguese market, is kept in a golden bottle, reminiscent of the golden sand, which is then wrapped in paper covered with blue and white patterns in homage to Santorini and Mykonos.
The Botano bottle is further decorated with a sprig of rosemary to evoke the Mediterranean breeze. Rosemary is one of the central botanicals in this Gin where we also find other Mediterranean herbs such as Dill, Basil, Parsley and even Bay.
Botano is the Greek word for herbal, for the aroma is dominated by its herbs. Citrus fruits, most notably lemon, also punctuate the aroma of Botano, Juniper also there in the background. Botano is therefore a fresh and perfumed Gin, ideal for a hot summer afternoon.
