David T Smith – 8.7
Nose: Delicate aromas of tutti-frutti and candied peel: a mixture of lemon, lime, and orange.
Palate: An exceptionally smooth gin, with a plentiful supply of citrus that creates an enticingly refreshing character.
Finish: Clean and very crisp with a mixture of juniper, pine and citrusy coriander.
Comments: An invigorating and lively gin, with a refreshing character that would work wonderfully in a variety of summer coolers.
Felicity Murray – 8.8
Nose: At first it takes you on a walk through damp, earthy pine forests, but then out into a garden full of herbs – fennel, mint, rosemary and thyme. Sweet citrus fruit aromas follow.
Palate: Juicy, spicy and full-bodied. Grapefruit and lime cuts though the juniper with rosemary, lemon thyme, mint and pink peppercorn.
Finish: Long and dry, fruity, sweet and smooth.
Comments: A delicate and pleasing gin that ticks all the boxes for mixing or sipping.
