The Gingilla, Gin Cocktail

We recently ran a 'Show Us Your Gin' cocktail creation competition with Provender Brown and Gill Murray, inviting people to send us their cocktail recipes.  The winner is this wonderfully fruity - and reallyrather potent! - cocktail from Judith Murrie - The Gingilla!
"Gingilla was named after my friend Gill, when experimenting one wet weekend! It is really tasty and perfect for those people less keen on the traditional dry gin cocktails." 
Judith's cocktail will be served at the Wee G & T Festival on Saturday 14th September.  This annual celebration of Scottish Artisan Gin is hosted by Provender Brown, and this year is set to feature over 80 gins, gin liqueurs and other delights. As well as this, three fantastic cocktail masterclasses from some of the industry's most talented distillers will be available. If you don't already have a ticket, we recommend you get booked up now.

    Created by Dunnet Bay Distillery in Caithness, rock rose gin gets its wonderful flavour from a carefully selected blend of local and traditional botanicals.
    Each one has been meticulously chosen for their flavour properties to create the perfect taste.  It's no wonder our winning cocktail features this favourite of PB customers!


    Juniper is the predominant botanical – otherwise it just wouldn’t be gin! Rock Rose junipers come from two different countries and both are subjected to a vapour infusion process! The Bulgarian juniper gives lemon sherbert notes, whilst the Italian juniper gives a real warmth and depth to the flavour of the gin.

    Rhodiola rosea

    Locally the team at Dubbet Bay harvest Rhodiola rosea, more commonly known as rose root, which is a plant that grows in colder climes – ideal for the fresh breezes of Caithness. They use the root of the plant, which has the most wonderful rose aroma and adds a delicate floral note to our gin.

    Sea Buckthorn

    Sea buckthorn is a silvery leafed shrub that grows along the coastline and produces clusters of vibrant orange berry-like fruit, soft, juicy and rich in oils. The fruit is highly celebrated for its high vitamin C content, around 15 times more than an orange! Dunnet Bay uses the berries for their taste – gorgeously fruity yet crisp.

    Rowan Berries

    The deciduous rowan tree, sometimes known as mountain ash, produces a brilliant red berry-like fruit. The tree is very much celebrated as a ‘hero’ in many mythology and folklore tales and has been known as a ‘tree of protection’ and used against witchcraft.

    The tree is a hero for Rock Rose too as its gorgeous red fruit imparts a delicate flavour adding to the berryful taste!
