BOSTON– M.S. Walker, a New England-based national importer and distributor of fine wines and spirits, has launched Garnish Island Gin in the U.S. Market. This small batch gin is crafted at West Cork Distillers in Skibbereen, Ireland by Deirdra Bohane, Ireland’s only female Master Gin Distiller.
The team at West Cork Distillers hand-built a custom copper pot still exclusively for the production of Garnish Island Gin. The gin, itself, is inspired by the Italian Botanical Gardens of Garnish Island, located off the southern coast of Ireland. The botanicals have been carefully selected to create a classic Gin that exhibits light floral notes of hibiscus, iris and rose matching beautifully with rosemary and thyme. This is complimented by luscious hints of dark chocolate and strawberry. This exotic Gin has a soft lingering glow on the finish.
Garnish Island Gin is now available with a retail price of $26.99 for a 750ml.
