Vibrant raspberry – fruity, plump and slightly tart. Very jammy with vanilla. A raspberry Victoria sponge.
Authentic raspberry notes upfront: sweet, with a lightly sour tang. Baking spice and crème brûlée follow with a mix of raspberry leaf and pine.
A dry finish that lingers on the palate, but without any cloying character.
A well-balanced liqueur that is not too sweet and captures the true character of the fruit.
Heavy, sugary sweet, but distinctly raspberry, with rosemary, honeysuckle and fresh cuttings.
A thick, honeyed mouthful but the candied sweetness is balanced with acidity and ripe raspberries.
Long, sweet and sticky.
The clear and brilliant crimson colour of this gin would add something special to any cocktail. However, I would choose to serve it topped with Prosecco in flute glasses. Alternatively, simply pour over ice and enjoy with a chocolate or choco-mint on the side.
