David T Smith – 8.6

Nose: Fragrant and vivacious on the nose with bright lemon, sweet anise and a gentle, green leafiness.

Taste: Very zesty to start: a mix of lemon and orange zest makes this crisp, but with a nice marmalade sweetness, too.

Finish: More citrus on the finish, but the flavours move towards the more floral aspects of mandarin and satsuma.

Comments: Bright and fruity – a lovely choice for a Martini or a White Lady.

Felicity Murray – 8.9 

Nose: Strong and hugely herbal with fresh citrus fruits. Chamomile, jasmine, lavender, parsley and coriander seed mingle with oranges and peaches.

Palate: A powerful and rich combination of all the above flavours.

Finish: The stone fruits and citrus notes overlay a spicy base of nutmeg, ginger and five spice. Long and rich.

Comments: Perfect for a White Lady cocktail  (30ml Cointreau, 50ml gin and 20ml lemon juice – one egg white optional) garnished with a lemon twist.
