David T. Smith – 7.2 

Nose: Plump blackberries and bright, green leafy notes of nettle. A floral combination of rose, violet and lavender.

Palate: Baked apple with caramelised brown sugar and cinnamon. This initial sweetness disappears and is replaced with cilantro, angelica and almond.

Finish: Really coats the mouth, leaving a citrusy oiliness and tingling warmth.

Comments: A punchy gin with plenty of pepper and citrus. Along with its oiliness, this bodes well for how the gin will retain its character when mixed.

Felicity Murray – 7.8

Nose: Deep forests. Lighter lemon and lime aromas and a touch of peppermint follow earthy notes with juniper and pine.

Palate: Sweet and sour, with an oily and full mouthfeel. A complex mix of bittersweet orange and lemon peel zest with chilli pepper and arrowroot.

Finish: Dry and lingering. Sweet and fruity.

Comments: An interesting and unusual take on a gin style that would mix well with some of the new and interesting flavoured tonic waters now on the market.
