David T Smith – 8.7 

Nose: Lemon with leafy, herbal notes of basil and lemon thyme. A little orange jelly too.

Taste: Good and soft in texture – very smooth – with some earthy floral notes from orris root and angelica that also provides a nice chocolatey flavour.

Finish: A bone dry finish that is crisp, with a modest citrus sparkle. 

Comments: A lovely example of a classic gin that would work well in staple gin drinks such as the Gin & Tonic or Martini.

Felicity Murray – 8.1 

Nose: Gentle with spruce and rooty notes, topped with wafts of lemon, honeysuckle and mint.

Palate: A finely balanced and undemonstrative gin. Light, creamy and easy with a mix of juniper, angelica, liquorice, peppery herbs and citrus flavours. 

Finish: Mild and lightly fruity – very pleasant but fairly short.

Comments: A well-made, versatile and approachable gin with a delicate flavour. A good one for cocktails, such as a Dry Martini, and for experimenting with flavoured tonics.
