David T Smith – 8.2

Nose: Bold and powerful with plenty of spice: clove, mace, and cassia, anise and wintergreen – sweet and aromatic.

Palate: Big red cassia upfront with a smooth and pleasant texture. Peanut brittle, before wintergreen and chamomile arrive; sweet, but light with an elegant complexity.

Finish: Pine jelly with oily coriander and the mellow complexity of honey roasted cashews.

Comments: Quite a sippable gin, with plenty of complexity to explore. A good option for a gin to pair with ginger ale.

Felicity Murray – 8.8

Nose: Grassy and herbal with hibiscus, lemongrass, bay leaves and Earl Grey tea. There’s just a hint of juniper and some fleshy fruit. 

Palate: Now the citrus begins to shine through the oily mouthfeel with a gentle balance of zesty lime and soft juicy melon, set off by warm spices.

Finish: Soft and juicy with oranges, ginger and vanilla.

Comments: An easy to sip gin, but with enough guts to hold its own in a cocktail or G&T.
