A recent addition to WIP’s line up of spirits, The Botanist experience was curated by Chee Kin Yong, Key Account Manager at Rémy Cointreau who explained that the number 22 on the 1.5 litre bottle referred to the local botanicals hand foraged on the Isle of Islay which augment the nine classic gin botanicals to give the only Islay Dry Gin it’s exclusive character. And Mdm. Jacqueline, one of the three winners of WIP’s May lucky draw went home with her own bottle of The Botanist Gin.
Throughout the night, guests were given the opportunity to try their hand at concocting their own cocktails or having one made for them at the personalized artisan cocktail bar. The drinks menu for the night included imaginative cocktails like the Sweet Spot and Better Bitter.
As a special treat for members of the media, a selection of botanicals and aromatics were made available to infuse commemorative bottles of Botanist Gin.
The Botanist Gin will continue to feature prominently in WIP promotions, packages and cocktails. So, anyone who missed out on World Gin Day can get their own exclusive experience of The Botanist at WIP.
