Fruity berry notes – raspberry and blackberry – make this slightly reminiscent of a creamy pavlova. Quite candied in style.
A relatively modest character, with more plump berry notes upfront that gradually fade away. The juniper notes that follow are very restrained.
Clean, but quite short, which is a shame: I’d have liked a little more on the finish.
A relatively clean gin, but one that needs more character, in particular of juniper or coriander.
Bubblegum, pear drops, blackcurrants and sherbet lemon – wafts of overly sweet confection, like being in a sweetshop or by a candyfloss stall.
An explosion of sherbet and liquorice with a touch of sweet black currant cordial.
Short and sweet with sherbet and bubblegum flavours and a very slight effervescence on the tongue.
Not a gin as we know it. Suitable for a sweet bubblegum cocktail garnished with a stick of liquorice or maraschino cherry.
