The Scottish saltire

Myrica Gale, commonly known as bog myrtle.

 Scotland the Brave
Myrica gale is commonly known as bog myrtle in Scotland with a folklore name of Sweet gale. It is used for herbal tea, and for cooking mostly with chicken and fish. It's also used as a bitter agent for making ale, sometimes with heather in America, Canada and in Britain, by home brewers and micro-breweries. It is also used to flavour gin and whisky. We pick myrica gale from the wild at the season's peak and carefully dry it, picking out impurities such as fern and grass. Bog myrtle is a very twiggy shrub, and we strip the leaves and seeds off large (more than 5 cm) twigs.
