Nose: Clean and light, with a flinty minerality, followed by the oil of orange peel and more subtle cucumber peel.

Palate: A very pleasant mouthfeel – thick and clean; a nicely distilled spirit. Subtle in character with juniper, coriander and angelica, accompanied by the gentle spice of cassia and ginger.

Finish: Good length, sweet grapefruit and brown sugar.

Comments: A well-made spirit with a subtlety to it, but nonetheless well integrated and complex. Would work well in a Gin Buck.

Nose: Not hugely aromatic at first but a balanced mix of traditional botanicals slowly emerges as the gin breathes.

Palate: Good and ginny with loads of fresh- tasting juniper and punchy citrus that gives way to more earthy and spicy flavours.

Finish: Citrusy and peppery and lasting a good long time.

Comments: Well balanced and with the complexity expected from a good traditional style dry gin. Perfect for a G&T with a wedge of lime but also smooth enough to sip straight up.
