Tasting Notes

Nose

Citrus leads the nose, both lemon peel and zesty juniper. Behind that are herbal notes, with flowering rosemary mingling with fresh green leaves and musky jars of dried herbs. Spice sits at the back, pitting nutmeg and crushed juniper against sharper cassia and liquorice notes.

Palate

Spicier than expected, with a burst of cinnamon on the front of the tongue. A core of soft woody spices is surrounded by citrus - lemon zest and bitter pith and sharp, sappy wood notes.

Finish

Soft and warming, with citrus notes building - lemon drizzle cake becomes candied lemons.

Comment

A classic gin, with spice, herbs, citrus and juniper character perfectly balanced on the palate while still giving complexity.
