Italian Dry Gin
Price per bottle: £21-40 (US$27-53)
David T. Smith – 8.1
Nose: Soft, yet nuanced nose, with notes of lemon peel and tangerine segments. Fruity and floral with a spot of star anise and almond.
Palate: A beautiful texture. The spirit fills the mouth with lots of citrus; both zesty peel and aromatic blossom.
Finish: Sweet and earthy liquorice with a twist of violets, along with more citrus and coriander, making for a long and oily finish.
Comments: Overall, a bright, summery gin; perfect for long, refreshing drinks
such as a Collins or even a Bramble.
Felicity Murray – 9
Nose: Alluring and well rounded with juniper, coriander, angelica root, oranges, rosemary and chamomile.
Palate: Hugely flavoursome and intense with sweet citrus, vegetal, floral and green herbal notes in perfect harmony.
Finish: Fruity and slightly peppery, long and complex.
Comments: Try mixing this gin with a light or herbal tonic and garnish with a slice of cucumber or even a stick of celery. It’s also the perfect gin for using in the classic Italian cocktail, the Negroni.
