Scotland-based Old Curiosity Distillery has added a lemon verbena-flavoured gin to its Secret Garden Range of premium gins.
Distilled using hand-harvested lemon verbena from the distillery’s Secret Herb Garden, the gin also features base botanicals of juniper, coriander, angelica and winter savoury.
The drink is the first clear gin produced by the distillery, joining the range of colour changing gins released by the brand last year, which are also made from natural botanicals picked in the Secret Herb Garden.
According to Old Curiosity, the drink is a refreshing dry gin, with a natural citrus note and a hint of lemon sherbet.
Owner of the Secret Herb Garen Hamish Martin said: “With the lighter nights now rolling in, we wanted to bring the first taste of summer to our fans, and what better way to do this than with a delicious lemon flavoured gin?
“This is one of our favourite gins yet and we’re thrilled with the results. The lemon verbena plant boasts plenty of health benefits; it is packed with antioxidants, protects muscles, reduces inflammation and boosts the immune system – plus it tastes delicious! So, when life gives you lemons, go for lemon verbena gin!”
The Lemon Verbena gin is available to buy from selected retailers and outlets in Scotland, and from Harvey Nichols stores nationwide in the UK, with a suggested retail price of £33 per 500ml bottle.
