Signature Scottish Gin
The Gael Spirits Company
Price per bottle: £
Sam Coyne – 7.8
Nose: Vanilla and freshly baked bread. Not your usual gin nose. Juniper is a little late to the party and makes a subdued entrance.
Palate: Creamy and there’s a heathered barley note. Vanilla. Just folds nicely over your tongue. Juniper is present without being the main act, while citrus is a passing note.
Finish: Lasting, with the backbone of a gin. Warming too.
Comments: Brings something quite intriguing to the table. Cream and vanilla. Faint wafts of juniper and citrus.
Phoebe Calver – 7.5
Nose: An interesting combination on the nose, almost cereal-like, or maybe corn. Citrus notes are popping through the juniper.
Taste: Very, very smooth and it has moved to a heathery sweetness, the citrus is still there but it has become a lot more rich and slightly hidden beneath some light spice.
Finish: Quite a fruity finish, with the spice hit holding out for as long as it could.
Comments: Lightly warming and rustic to taste.
