David T. Smith7.7

Nose: Grass with the earthy woodiness of angelica. Soft and relatively quiet, with the whiff of marzipan.

Palate: Restrained with a good character that ticks all of the basic gin boxes. The earthy sweetness of liquorice with the faintest hints of violet and maybe even rose.

Finish: Dry and slightly vegetal. The full force of the spirit comes through, leaving a glowing warmth on the tongue.

Comments: A well-made, earthy gin with some sweetness, too; would work well in an Aviation.

Felicity Murray7.9 

Nose: A big floral hit with orris, roses, lavender and honeysuckle, along with juniper, mixed with spicy notes of nutmeg and coriander.

Palate: Instantly it feels rich and oily in the mouth with warm spicy flavours mingling with pear drops and tropical fruits. There’s a nice balance of fruitiness, earthiness and spiciness.

Finish: Long, creamy and warming with apple pie and custard to finish.

Comments: Dare to serve as a G&T in a large bowl glass with a ball of ice. Add a red chilli pepper to garnish.
