The label designs feature artwork from local artists based in the highlands.

Rock Rose Clootie Dumpling
Inspired by a traditional Scottish steamed pudding, laden with fruits & spice.
Cloot is Scots for cloth, and the puddings are wrapped in a cloth as they cook. Actual clootie dumplings are vapour distilled along with juniper, raisins, nutmeg and allspice.
Contemporary artist Lindsey Gallacher created the unique artwork on a scratchboard layered with china clay and coated with India ink. The image, which shows a Caithness "wifey" making clootie dumplings in her kitchen, was then meticulously etched out using fine points and scalpels.
Rock Rose Apple & Lavender
Fragrant Apple & Lavender gin. Using Apples from Scotland's Black Isle. Light, sweet and elegant and ideal for a Bramble cocktail.
Water colour artist Liz O'Donnell produced a painting to embody the flavour.
Rock Rose Coastal Edition
The inspiration for the expression was the Caithness coastline, and it was distilled using locally foraged kelp and liquorice salt from Hebridean Mustard Company.
The label design inspired by the drifting tides of Caithness, was done by Kelly Munro.
Rock Rose Jam Doughnut gin
The Dunnet Bay team distilled 20 jam doughnuts in the botanical vapour basket of their still, along with more jam, some local raspberries, Madagascan vanilla and juniper.
