David T. Smith8.6

Nose: Delicate floral rose and hibiscus before jammy berry fruit. Indulgent spiced waxy vanilla and tonka bean, before citrus.

Palate: Spicy, with the zesty spice of cracked coriander seed. Dry wood follows, before green leafy notes and pine needles, reminiscent of morning dew. Builds to citrus.

Finish: Long and lingering, helped by the ABV. Citrus peel and leaf combines with a green stalkiness; zesty and fresh.

Comments: A bold spirit, but doens’t overpower. Would make a different but enjoyable Negroni.

Felicity Murray7.8

Nose: An initial powerful hit of juniper, coriander seed, cardamom and zingy lemon zest. Left to breathe a while, some herbal and dusty, earthy notes emerge.

Palate: The alcohol needs to be diluted for the bold flavours of citrus and spice to be appreciated. Tangerines, oranges and lemons mingle with herbs and pepper.

Finish: Bitter orange marmalade, with a pinch of black pepper.

Comments: This citrusy gin is perfect for mixing in cocktails such as a Negroni, but would be delicious with tonic and a twist of orange peel.
