Sam Coyne – 8.1

Nose: Juniper laden, with funky citrus zests. A little vanilla behind the scenes. 

Palate: Piney juniper, a touch of coriander and altogether you have a herbal number. Citrus cuts through that eventually with a puckering pink grapefruit note. Livens things up a little. 

Finish: Long and satisfying. Indian tonic really enhances the pink grapfruit. 

Comments: Good execution of specific botanicals – juniper is crisp and clear, citrus punchy and the vanilla holds it all together.

Phoebe Calver – 8.2

Nose: Floral from the off, but with a little spray of orange and light vanilla notes.

Taste: The floral theme continues, but isn’t as overpowering as I was expecting. It moves to the back to make way for a sweetness and warmth and unmistakably juniper is there.

Finish: There is a lot of flavour going on which remains long after the warmth of the alcohol wears off. 

Comments: Packed full of complex aspects that make it delightfully sippable.
