David T Smith – 9.1 

Nose: Soft, fruity notes with the sweetness of raisin and savoury aromas of tomato with a pinch of cinnamon.

Taste: Plenty of sweet spice on the palate: cinnamon, cassia and cloves. Slightly woody with fruity hints of raisin and candied peel. A touch of saffron makes it reminiscent of Simnel cake. 

Finish: More woody on the finish, with notes of dry spice and earthy chocolate.

Comments: A fine, full-bodied gin with a bold character that would make a very handsome Negroni.

Felicity Murray – 8.2 

Nose: Sweet and rich with vanilla, clove, liquorice root and cinnamon and a little juniper, rose and meadowsweet.

Palate: Oily and peppery with some refreshing citrus zest emerging along with satisfyingly warm baking spices.

Finish: Long lasting and creamy with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and black pepper remaining. 

Comments: A pleasant drink that would work well in a Dry Martini or Spritz (gin, vermouth and tonic) with a twist of orange or lemon peel.
