Miami, Florida (12/31/19) – Vision Wine & Spirits has reached an agreement with International Wine and Spirits to distribute Rose, their award-winning gin in Florida starting in January. Rock Rose Gin is imported in the US by Vision Wine & Spirits, the national sales & import division of Martignetti Companies. The gin is already distributed in DC, Boston, New York, New Hampshire, Colorado, Pennsylvania and Illinois with expansion plans in the works for the West Coast and Connecticut.

The Scottish Gin Awards announced the winner of the Scottish Gin Distillery of the year in October 2019, following the judging of a blind tasting of 173 Scottish gins. The ultimate award, Scottish Gin Distillery of the Year, was presented to Caithness-based Dunnet Bay Distillers after phenomenal growth in demand for their Rock Rose Gins worldwide. The Dunnet Bay Distillers team were praised for a commitment to sustainable business practices, community engagement and investment in people as a key employer in the area.

Rock Rose Gin (41.5% ABV) is a Scottish family-owned gin created from an infusion of traditional and local botanicals, five of which are hand foraged from local cliffs and forests. The Rock Rose (Rhodiola rosea), which grows on the local seawalls, was long ago consumed by Vikings for stamina and vitality. It is now used by many as an herbal supplement to combat fatigue and anxiety. Juniper is the predominant botanical, selected from two different countries. Both junipers are subjected to a vapor infusion process and the Bulgarian juniper gives lemon sherbet notes, while the Italian juniper gives a real warmth and depth to the flavor of the gin. Rock Rose Gin reflects the freshest air and purest water from Dunnet Bay in the Scottish Highlands.

Rock Rose Gin Navy Strength (57% ABV) gets its wonderful flavor from a carefully selected and put together creation of local and traditional botanicals.

The spirit was created to showcase the heritage and provenance of Caithness and the Pentland Firth which was a busy passage way for mariners during the two world wars when the base for the Royal Navy’s Home Fleet was in Scapa.

The higher ABV means that the unique flavors remain prominent when served with other ingredients.

Vision Wine & Spirits, LLC is a division of the Martignetti Companies, the 6th largest distributor in the United States, and an independent family-owned business since 1908, with corporate offices in Taunton, MA.
