“Sweet Gale” is how Bog Myrtle likes to be called at smart dinner parties, but given the legendary aphrodisiac qualities of this most scarlet-haired wild beauty, it is likely that the mask might slip a little through the evening… we’re talking here of the unruly Hepple botanical, rather than the marginally greying male pushing in from the right, whose qualities fall far from the aphrodisiacal (ed – quite enough now….). So we watch the glorious red blooms emerge and then puff their luminous green pollen in clouds in the wind, waiting for the similarly luminous green leaves to curl out in June. There is an aroma of bay, an earthy, grassy eucalyptus scent on the Hepple winds tonight.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀. #hepplegin #juniper #distillery #science #nature #balance #wild #botanicals #craft #harvesting #land #northumberland #hepple #local #environment – from Instagram
