Sam Coyne – 8.2 

Nose: Clout. Heft. Weight. This carries all of the above. Juniper forward – pine and wet leaves. Finally a little floral and citrus brightness comes through. Liquorice.

Palate: The citrus takes over initially here – bitter lemon and lime zests. Pepper brings a bit of spice to level out the sweetness. Faint flesh of lemon.

Finish: Drying to say the least. More of the citrus stays with you.

Comments: A gin that celebrates its botanicals by allowing them to sing. Could add something to a Martini.

Phoebe Calver – 8.0 

Nose: Prominent juniper, mixed in with an earhty hit. Some citrus there with a fresh kick at the end.

Taste: Floral, lightly warming across the tongue. A subtle peppery, menthol hit, pretty sweet and zesty.

Finish: Fresh feeling is like a light menthol, leaves mouth feeling like you’ve just hit the mouthwash hard. Very dry throughout.

Comments: Reminds me of raiding my granddads stash of mint humbugs.
