The Botanist

Pick your own foraged cocktail garnish and take part in gin masterclasses

The Botanist, Islay’s first and only dry gin will be offering a wild experience like no other at Taste of London this year, bringing Islay to London. Treat your senses to a unique gin, handcrafted and distilled on the Isle of Islay.

The Botanist is a truly exceptional gin and a representation of the region’s progressive heritage. Nine classic gin botanicals are augmented by 22 local herbs and flowers, all foraged responsibly by hand from the hills, shores and bogs of the Hebridean Island by botanical scientists.

Whether it’s a classic The Botanist and Tonic that takes your fancy or a festive foraged cocktail, The Botanist will be offering a host of seasonal serves at their bar – bringing Islay to the festive edition of Taste of London from Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th November.

Explore the botanicals of The Botanist Gin and pick your own garnish with The Botanist’s foraging table, which will display a selection of botanicals – a Taste of London Festive Edition exclusive.

Taste of London also invites customers to meet a host of The Botanist special guests and learn the story behind The Botanist and how it came about.

Throughout the festive edition of Taste of London, visitors will also be able to purchase The Botanist as well as limited edition gifts exclusively at the event. Visit The Botanist in East Mall 4 near the main entrance to pick up the perfect Christmas present.

*Masterclass tickets priced at £10, limited to 20 people per session. Book Here
