Our Botanicals

Find out more about the botanicals we use in Lytham Gin

A botanical is a plant that is valued because of its flavour, scent, medicinal or therapeutic properties.  Botanicals are the ingredients used in gin to give it its unique taste.  Sandgrown Spirits use a variety of leaves, fruits, nuts, barks, seeds, roots and flowers to impart a range of flavours to their spirits.

Getting the Balance Right

Botanicals can provide a number of different flavours which can be classified as herbaceous, spicy, citrus, floral or fruity.  A good gin should contain elements of several flavour groups, for example our Original gin is described as being citrus and spiced whereas our Blooming Gorgeous is floral and fruity.
