Height of Arrows Gin:
Unlike many gins inspired by various clear spirits, the Scottish gin brand, Height of Arrows, is inspired by Whiskey. Just as whiskey is determined by just three ingredients of water, barely, and yeast, Height of Arrows gin flavor and aroma is determined by the use of three ingredients alone, juniper, Isle of Skye salt, and beeswax. Juniper is front and center, Isle of Skye salt is used to enhance the flavor, and beeswax aids in providing a smooth finish.
