David T Smith – 8.2

Nose: A good, clean nose with woodiness and moss – forest-like, with aromas of rosehips and fragrant cedar.

Palate: The purity of the gin continues to come through clearly on the palate with a modest botanical intensity. Juniper is met with black liquorice and green anise, alongside a spot of fennel. 

Finish: Coriander, which crisply rounds into a long dry finish. 

Comments: A gin that has obviously been well put together; its complexity sits beneath its juniper prominence. A natural choice for a Gin & Tonic.

Felicity Murray – 8.6

Nose: Big and robust with lashings of juniper, juicy citrus fruit and a subtle earthiness; out of which surfaces mown grass, fennel and a touch of caraway seed.

Palate: Packs a punch, oily and full bodied, with earthy, spicy, floral, fruity and herbal flavours.

Finish: Long and clinging, holding all the above flavours and culminating with a hint of soft fruit.

Comments: Delicious, full of body and flavour. The fairly complex botanical balance will mix well with aromatic tonics, or in cocktails such as a Dry Martini.
