Bog Standard

  • Base Spirit Gin
  • Preparation Stirred
  • Flavor Boozy
  • Served On the Rocks

Created by Scott Jenkins of Hide in Dallas, TX for the Caorunn Gin 10 Year Switch.

“I was inspired most by the spice of bog myrtle, which to me was very akin to allspice dram. I wanted soft heather notes, taken from the Stroma, and a bit of apple borrowed from Applejack. This drink is lush and soft, highlighting and enhancing the components of Caorunn Gin,” Jenkins explained in a statement. “Stirred to perfection and poured over a single cube, for slow sipping, and good times. I lived in England for over three years, and visited Scotland many times, the lush scenery reminds me a lot of this cocktail.”
