George Forrest was a great plant hunter, a true pioneer of the 20th Century. Over 28 years, Forrest led seven valiant expeditions to the exotics of Yunnan, China, to discover and collect new plants. Though these trips were fraught with danger, they became heroic tales of bravery and adventure. Our gin pays homage to Forrest’s legacy.
We carefully combined seven locally-grown botanicals, including two of Forrest’s own discoveries, and every batch is distilled just 1.5 miles from where his home cottage still stands in Loanhead, Scotland.
