David T Smith – 7.7
Nose: Quiet and clean with a light minerality, woody pine and a soft fruitiness.
Taste: Dry berry notes to start with, including cranberry and raspberry, followed by a little vanilla creaminess.
Finish: Particularly dry on the finish, with earthy notes of angelica, black pepper and floral jasmine.
Comments: Clean and dry, with minimal sweetness, this gin would work well in long drinks.
Felicity Murray – 8.6
Nose: Delicate with light juniper and citrus notes with apples, pears and gooseberries edging through with some floral notes.
Palate: Pleasant and light with juicy citrus, sweet liquorice and piquant cherub berries.
Finish: Plenty of flavours continue to hover on a long and creamy finish with warm spices and a sharp citrus note.
Comments: A well-made gin that would be versatile enough to partner a light or robust tonic and make a good addition to classic gin cocktails. Add mint or a slice of lime to garnish.
