The Collector Scottish Gin

Who was george forrest?

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.

George's Legacy

Though these trips were fraught with danger, they became heroic tales of bravery and adventure. Forrest brought back over 30,000specimens, hundreds of which are still in cultivation today and flourish in many gardens.



Locally Grown Botanicals

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.

Hemerocallis Forrestii
A dwarf day lily with golden yellow edible flowers that add a subtle floral note.

Sorbus Forrestii
With masses of white berries and pink tips in Autumn the sorbus give us a little bitterness and berry tang.

Juniper - Known for its sweet, peppery fragrance. Provides
pine and resinous flavours, it’s wouldn’t be gin without it.

Coriander Seed – The second most important botanical after
juniper, adding a complex flavour of citrus and a little spice.

Angelica Root - The master of providing the aromatic for
gin. It’s earthy and deep flavours carry its herbal tones through the nose.

Winter Savory - This delicate herb of happiness adds a savoury herbaceous note to our gin. Subtle but pairs perfectly with the peppery juniper.

Lemon Verbena - With its fragrant lemon sweetness, these leaves provide a punchy lemon and line burst to our gin.
