The world’s first Scottish gin distilled with Scottish grown tea leaves.
The Growers Edition collection was inspired by a new group of tea pioneers. Around Scotland, a determined group of growers are nurturing Scottish grown tea plants. The progress is slow and painstaking. The result is both unique and rare. The Teasmith creators were inspired to take this precious crop and create a truly unique range of gins.
Broich Single Estate is the first in this series, featuring 12 carefully selected botanicals including Broich black tea from the Broich Tea Garden in Crieff. When distilled, Broich black tea gives light aromas of honey and apple. These notes have been fused with elements of the classic Teasmith profile to create a rare and unique Scottish gin.
With a tea crop so small, only 1000 bottles were produced initially. This collection is truly limited edition and we look forward to adding to it with a variety of teas grown right here in Scotland.
The video below highlights Beverly's work creating The Scottish Tea Factory - a place where growers can take their harvest for processing and where the Broich black tea was made. Bev also runs courses and tastings if you are interested in learning more about tea.
