Crofter’s Tears is a deliciously smooth London dry gin evoking the spirits of the Highlands both on and in the bottle. The hero local ingredient picked from their very doorstep is purple heather tips. These only bloom in July and August and are carefully handpicked by themselves and blended with juniper and a range of botanicals including cassia bark and cubeb to give a wonderfully deep traditional gin. With a hint of fresh lime, this gin is best served with Fevertree Mediterranean Tonic and a bramble to garnish. The bottle mirrors the ingredients with purple heather flowers embossed around the bottom of the bottle and depicting a majestic Highland stag on the bottleneck.
