David T Smith – 7.8 

Nose: Green pine with soft fruity aromas of strawberry and raspberry, accompanied by a hint of clotted cream.

Taste: Soft and well-rounded in flavour, with earthy floral notes and some honeyed violets, before more tangy citrus.

Finish: A dry, clean finish with a flinty earthiness, a touch of cereal, and lingering notes of pine.

Comments: A good all-rounder that would work well in a Gin & Tonic with a wedge of orange.

Felicity Murray – 6.6 

Nose: Rich and enticing, chocolate with nuts and raisins, dark forest fruits, liquorice, ginger and juniper.

Palate: Full flavoured with bitter cocoa, vanilla and ground coffee beans mingle with juicy oranges, macadamia nuts and rich fruitcake flavours.

Finish: Long, dry and deliciously chocolaty with a pinch of pepper. Not too sweet, leaving you wanting more.

Comments: This unusual gin could make an interesting cocktail base, but serve neat over ice cubes with a sprig of mint or orange slice to garnish.
