Believe it or not, this multi-award winning gin only came into being in 2013. Before that, we (Matt and Marcus) had been friends and business partners for years, with backgrounds in engineering, furniture restoration and property renovation. We were working at Summerhall when we spotted the derelict dogs kennels from the small animal hospital that once stood in the middle of the old Royal (Dick) Veterinary School. What to do with it? As fate would have it, Marcus had recently inherited a gin recipe from a friend of his late father. Hmmm… Add to that our mutual penchant for a good gin, and the next step seemed obvious. Never mind that we didn’t, strictly speaking, have a distillery. We rolled up our sleeves and built one. Never mind that we had no background in distilling. We tried, tested and experimented until we were experts. Never mind that everyone told us it couldn’t be done. We got on and did it. And so began the story of the Botanical Engineers.
An earthy, floral character, juniper and pine balanced by a little anise sweetness
What our customers are saying
Gin & Tonic Cocktail Recipe
Gin & Tonic. If you can say it, you can make it. Right? Right. But also, not exactly. The two-ingredient cocktail requires your undivided attention. From glassware to garnish to style of gin and spirit proof, everything should be carefully considered when mixing a G&T. A Gin & Tonic made with a potent base—45% ABV and above, if you mean business—and configured with two parts tonic to one part gin is a highball of balance and beauty. Too much gin, and the botanical spirit will overshadow the unique qualities of the tonic. Too much tonic, and it will drown the gin. There is endless room for experimentation within those two ingredients. With hundreds of gins on the market and dozens of tonics, a good G&T is a mix-and-match exercise to find the combination that best suits your tastes. London dry gins are characterized by their juniper-forward flavor profile; modern-style gins often dial down the juniper and ramp up the citrus and florals.
