David T Smith – 9.0 

Nose: Slightly jammy citrus, we’re thinking lemon marmalade, followed by coriander and finally dry juniper.

Taste: Succulent fruit notes to start with, followed by biscuity coriander, resinous juniper and some background spice.

Finish: Crisp, resinous pine with some zesty citrus; clean and long-lasting. 

Comments: A lively and delicious classic gin; it’s great to see this style being enjoyed around the world.

Felicity Murray – 7.9 

Nose: Rich, nutty and spicy with a heady mix of nutmeg, cardamom, cumin, cinnamon and ginger along with a trace of dusty, earthy, angelica and orris root.

Palate: Big and oily with a lot of heat over a subtle citrus and sweet liquorice bite. 

Finish: Warm and mildly fruity with gentle sweet spices. Quite long. 

Comments: Lacks some balance and complexity. However, it’s an interesting and bold gin, that would make a flavoursome G&T. Try with a fruit flavoured tonic.
