David T. Smith – 8.2 

Nose: Woodland flowers – aromatic and delicate – accompanied by light spice, in particular cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.

Palate: The nutmeg comes through on the palate, along with ginger and cinnamon, reminiscent of moist, spiced sponge cake.

Finish: A gentle sweetness and the flavours of rose cream before a powerful, dry finish.

Comments: A bold and flavoursome gin that will stand up well to mixing; I’d recommend a Negroni with a dash of chocolate bitters.

Felicity Murray – 8.0 

Nose: Fresh and gentle with soft citrus fruits and hints of various herbal flowers, rosemary, jasmine and chamomile. 

Palate: Elegant and nicely balanced with a light, juicy freshness. Sharp summer fruits and sweet spices mingle with a hint of pine and damp earthy notes towards the end. 

Finish: Long, slightly sweet and fruity.

Comments: Simple and delicate. This is a very approachable gin that would work well with a light tonic and a sprig of summer berries.
