Buy St George Botanivore Gin
Fresh and lightly herbaceous, with bright citrus, subtle floral notes, earth, and spice.
Wine Enthusiast 93 points - Bartenders will want to experiment with this lovely, lightly floral gin for spring cocktails. It has a light touch, from the citrus scent to the sweet flavor that finishes with a bouquet of rose petals, violets and honeysuckle. One of a trio of new gins from this small-batch distiller. -K.N. (Apr 2012)

Review
Botanivore Gin (our "botanical eater") earned its name because it's loaded with botanical ingredients. We distilled 19 different botanicals to compose this spirit (no small feat!) and the resulting gin is beautifully balanced and vibrant. Lance compares this gin to an orchestra where all the components are working in harmony. Deliciously herbaceous and bright, Botanivore is a versatile addition to any gin cocktail.

Technical notes
We layer juniper berries, bay laurel, and fresh cilantro in our botanicals basket. The other 16 ingredients are steeped overnight in the pot of our 1,500-liter copper pot still. The next morning, we apply gentle steam heat to coax out all of the beautiful flavors and aromas. By the end of the day, we have 800 bottles worth of Botanivore.
