David T. Smith – 7.8 

Nose: Earthy. Plenty of orris root and a mix of blackcurrant and violet, followed by a green, vegetal leafiness.

Palate: A relatively sweet gin accompanied by peppery notes and some earthy nuttiness with a butteryness too.

Finish: Bright, fresh, lemony citrus combined with coriander and a dash of piney juniper.

Comments: A slightly sweeter gin that would be great for those who usually find a Gin & Tonic or Negroni too bitter.

Felicity Murray – 7.5 

Nose: Packed with bright fresh garden herbs, mown meadows and summer hedgerow berries, then pine needles and underlying earthy aromas follow, along with a touch of lemon juice. 

Palate: Earthy and slightly herbal, dry and peppery with an alcohol-induced warmth, eventually some citrus fruits.

Finish: Warm and peppery with sherbet lemon lingering.

Comments: Lends itself to experimentation with tonics and garnishes – pile in the summer herbs and berries or chunks of citrus fruit.
