Tasting notes by Billy A
Nose: Sweet anis and porridgey grain, spicy juniper underneath with hints of pine and green leaves.
Palate: Soft and spicy, with creamy edges, pine needles, coriander, sweet orange peel, crushed juniper and lots of syrup sweetness.
Finish: Coriander, lemon, puckering orange oils and some vanilla sponge cake.
Tasting notes by Summerfruitcup
Nose: Juniper and lemon verbena; piney and perfumed.
Taste: Juniper to start and then a full, zesty, jammy and floral combination of orange-coriander, followed by some orange and lemon blossom mixed with lemon balm and verbena. The finish is long and lingering, with plenty of citrus. The citrus and floral notes give this gin a contemporary character, but it’s backed up by plenty of pine. Very enjoyable and a fine gin to enjoy on the rocks.
