Mey Selections Traditional Scottish Gin The Castle of Mey, Caithness
“Mey Selections” is a brand inspired by Prince Charles which supports local food and drink producers within a 150 mile radius of the beautiful Castle of Mey, the ancestral home of his grandmother HRH the Queen Mother, and based on Scotland’s northernmost shores.
Their newly-launched gin is produced by Martin Murray of Rock Rose gin fame, using a similar mix of botanicals to Rock Rose gin but with the addition of special herbs grown in and around Mey Castle. Applemint gives a slightly sweeter flavor than other mints and grows in the local forests. Sweet cicely, gathered from the hedgerows, has a gentle aniseed flavor, whilst the bog myrtle from the walls of the castle itself lend a herbal, menthol flavor.
Best served on ice with a slice of orange or grapefruit peel.
