Colombia is known for being home to a host of wonderful rums, but it also has some very interesting aged gin: Dictador Orthodoxy (left) and Treasure (right), created by the makers of Dictador Rum. The story behind these bottles is that the former president of the company loved gin so much he went about making his own, with the result being a set of lovely smooth and well-rounded gins, made with a unique selection of botanicals and aged in rum barrels.

Scotland is famous for its Scotch malt whiskys, but it’s also a huge producer of gins. In addition to turning out global bestsellers Tanqueray and Gordon’s, Scotland is home to around 140 different gins, including a large array of delightful craft gins. At bar miyako, we have a few of these interesting Scottish gins available, so please stop by if you’d like a taste!
From photo left: Crisp and richly aromatic Blackwood’s is made with botanicals from the Shetland Islands. The fruity but crisp Caorunn is produced by the Balmenach whisky distillery in Speyside with Celtic botanicals like heather, dandelion and rowan berry. Hendrick’s, loved the world over as the pioneer of craft Scottish gin, includes a special recipe of cucumber and rose petal infusions. The Botanist is created at the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay and includes 22 native botanicals which make it a smooth and balanced gin. Old Raj has a unique slight golden tint — a result of the post-distillation addition of saffron. Available at either 55 degrees (blue label) or 46 degrees (red label).
