David T. Smith9.1 

Nose: Vivacious lemongrass, herbal and full of citrus notes with menthol and ginger. The gin really blossoms out of the glass – fabulous.

Palate: More lemongrass with a creaminess that reminds of lemongrass cheesecake, followed by dryer juniper that return the spirit firmly back into gin territory.

Finish: Lemongrass pops back for a farewell, accompanied by ginger nut biscuits.

Comments: A bold and adventurous spirit and a must-try for any swash-buckling gin lover. Definitely one to try in a Gin & Tonic.

Felicity Murray

Nose: Leather and wood mingle with curried, earthy vapours before more grassy and fruity aromas emerge and some floral notes.

Palate: Strong woody and rooty flavours, slightly nutty but with a tartness. African violets, liquorice and lemon grass.

Finish: Long but oily with a bitter edge.

Comments: Not one I’d choose to drink neat but it would mix well with a lightly flavoured tonic water, or stand its ground in a Negroni cocktail.

    Totally agree with David. It’s my favorite go to Gin and makes a stellar G&T with a twist of orange.
