David T. Smith – 7.5 

Nose: Subtle, with the plump, berry fruitiness of strawberry accompanied by the vanilla of indulgent, fresh cream.

Palate: Forward juniper notes: plump, sparkling and resinous. The palate is green, with lots of leafy notes.

Finish: Dry, woody notes and spicy coriander that lingers on the palate.

Comments: A delicate gin with an excellent mouthfeel that would work well on the rocks or in a Martini.

Felicity Murray – 8.6

Nose: Deliciously fruity with hints of melon and apples, along with juniper, pine, floral and herbal notes.

Palate: Full but gentle and nicely rounded. A fine balance of apples and pears with a touch of juicy summer berries, honey and spice, that ends with a dry earthier mouthfeel.

Finish: Maintains a mellow balance of fruit and spice flavours, leaving you wanting to take another sip.

Comments: An adaptable, subtly flavoured gin. Try in a martini cocktail, or a G&T with a slice of apple.
