David T Smith – 8.6

Nose: Clean and crisp juniper, angelica and coriander. Simple, but also a classic nose.

Palate: A real complexity comes through on the palate on top of a good, solid classic gin backbone, augmented by gentle spice and mellow citrus. 

Finish: A dry, slightly leafy finish that is clean and pure with very little alcohol burn. 

Comments: A fine example of a classic gin that would be well-suited to a Martini.

Felicity Murray – 8.8 

Nose: Fresh citrus fruits, pine needles, peppery spices and earthy root aromas. Clean and balanced.

Palate: Dry, powerful and fairly complex with a sharp citrus edge cutting through the juniper and fresh green herbal flavours. 

Finish: Warm and dry, of medium length and with a soft citrus twang.

Comments: A good example of a traditional style gin that will shine through a classic tonic mixer and stand its ground in a cocktail. Garnish with a twist of citrus peel and perhaps a sprig of mint.
