Wine EnthusiastAlthough the "Botanist" name might suggest a floral gin, instead the flavor profile veers toward herbs and spices. There's a subtle, herbal scent, with anise flavors up front, backed by coriander seed and cassia bark on the spicy finish. Made by Bruichladdich Distillery, which is renowned for its Scotch, on a pot-still named Ugly Betty. Sold in an attractive, square-shouldered, gift-worthy bottle.
