· GIN WITH Santolina ·
Green Santolina, also known as Santolina Virens, is not generally used as a botanical in gins. This is because it can cause some skin rashes in individuals who already have sensitive skin. When it is used it offers a slight medicinal aroma and taste to it. There are some hints of lavender, and if the leaves are bruised it will open up the aroma, although too much and the smell of Santolina will become especially bitter and pungent.
