Watercress Dry Gin
Price Per Bottle: £21-40 (US$27-53)
David T. Smith – 8.3
Nose: Herbaceous with hints of rosemary, black tea and delicate meadow flower. Aromatic and inviting.
Palate: Nuanced tea notes: hints of Darjeeling and Assam. Resinous juniper, that is bright and punchy. A light, caramelised sweetness, with cassia and ginger snaps.
Finish: Dry and oily with lots juniper pine notes and a broadly leafy character. Notes of menthol pepper linger.
Comments: Exciting with a complex character. Has great potential in a Gin & Tonic or perhaps a dirty Martini.
Felicity Murray – 7.9
Nose: Subtle herbal, cut grass and vegetal notes, floral with only the slightest hint of juniper and pine leaves.
Palate: Mild and slightly peppery, Nasturtium flowers, cucumber and green salad leaves.
Finish: Long and dry. Peppery and gently warming without
Comments: Easy-going and mild gin that, to appreciate its subtle flavouring, would best be served neat over ice with a slice of cucumber. Don’t over dilute if mixing with tonic, or other flavours in a cocktail.
