Height Of Arrows Gin
From: Holyrood Distillery
Height of Arrows is a gin inspired by how Holyrood make whisky. Whisky’s vast array of flavours rely on distillers’ expertise in using just three ingredients, water, malted barley and yeast. In creating Height of Arrows the team sought to create a gin that followed the same principle of utilising a few ingredients and elevated them to achieve an abundance of flavour.
To create Height of Arrows they have focused production on gin’s essential botanical, juniper, with each iteration using Juniper in a different way. Height of Arrows showcases Juniper’s complex flavours, while additions of Isle of Skye sea salt and natural beeswax, marry with juniper to impart a further depth of flavour and create a layered texture.
