Price Per Bottle: £41-60 (US$54-79)
David T Smith – 8.3
Nose: An eye-catching periwinkle blue, with rose jam and cooked coriander seed.
Palate: Light rye bread alongside some huckleberry. This is followed by the citrus zing of lime and cracked black pepper.
Finish: A gentle bitterness, reminiscent of grapefruit zest, is accompanied by residual fiery warmth of ginger root.
Comments: Citrus- and spice-forward with more intensity than other colour-changing gins. Given its properties, serve with a grapefruit tonic or in a Gin Collins.
Felicity Murray – 8.8
Nose: Surprisingly traditional, with juniper followed by cinnamon and citrus fruit. There’s no hint of what gives it its electric colour.
Palate: Oily and powerful. There’s a lot going on with tingly spices nicely balanced with citrus fruit – grapefruit mingling with sweet ginger.
Finish: A warm glow, slightly sweet with juniper berries, black pepper and citrus.
Comments: Love or hate the colour, this is well-made with a lot of character. Will enhance any gin cocktail and look as good as it tastes in a G&T.
