Perfumed lemongrass and ginger make this an evocative and inviting nose. The aromas really capture the drinker’s attention.
Soft and oily with sweet cinnamon and the brightness of lemongrass and orange peel. Gentle juniper follows.
Lingering ginger and lemongrass notes, which last for a good while after drinking.
A fresh and vibrant spirit that is very smooth. The lemongrass risks overpowering everything else, but just holds off. Great for Gin Tonics.
Huge citrusy aromas of lemon and lime, grapefruit and orange zest dominate, with a few herbal notes and a touch of vanilla coming through.
Initially all the anticipated botanical flavours of a gin are there, but then there’s a sharp burst of zingy, bitter citrus fruits.
Crisp, dry and slightly acidic. Long and refreshing.
The fresh citrus flavours of this gin would stand up well to most tonics but try adding an elderflower tonic with torn mint leaves to garnish.
