Crossbill Gin 200
In the ancient juniper forests of Scotland there are some rare plants which have been producing juniper for centuries, the grand dames of the highland forests. So on discovering a specimen that is over 200 years old (in Scotland it's rare for Juniper to age more than 200 years) we decided to do something very special to honour this time aged fruit.
As a tribute to this magnificent specimen we have used her berries to produce Crossbill 200 Special Edition. Produced using fruit only from this ancient juniper bush and the wild rosehip that grows around her.
Presented in a special edition bottle by Glencairn Glass, in a choice of either black or etched print, wax sealed, individually labelled & packaged in a letter pressed presentation tube. Each bottle features a map detailing the exact location of the single Juniper bush of which it is made and the OS coordinates.
Due to the precious nature of this juniper bush, this release is extremely limited.
As a thank you for supporting Crossbill we have made bottles marked 'Founders Reserve'. Although you'd better hurry as we only have 18 bottles available!
This is the last and final release - once they're gone, they're gone!
At 59.8 % Still Strength to enable maximum flavour penetration the 200 Special Edition busts fresh pine and juniper essence with oils flocking at the slightest reduction in strength. It is the perfect expression of a rare & magnificent highland plant captured and condensed.
