  • A WILD FORAGE BERRY WHEN IN SEASON

    Rare to find so good luck!

    Found across Scotland, it thrives in drier areas where trees enjoy bright sunshine and open space. The foliage consists of needles and its fruit a blue and aromatic berry. The young shoots were also used for seasoning.

    Juniper is now among our most rare trees, due mainly to a fungus but also perhaps related to climate change. Many have been lost through disease but replanting programmes are underway. There are artisan gin distillers who are collaborating with a number of conservation projects.

    Berries can be picked and dried and used as a spice – delicious with game, juice and of course as gin.

    No address for sourcing – forage if you will!
