Sam Coyne – 7.9

Nose: Fresh and bright. Citrus forward; lemon zest, faintly floral. Are those berries floating in the background? Juniper in the wings. 

Palate: Like running through the trails. Initially a bold, piney juniper note, with freshly turned earth. The citrus zests come through, before it finishes with a smartly handled anise note.  

Finish: Lingers fleetingly. Indian tonic dials down the earth, but enhances citrus. 

Comments: A contemporary classic? Could quickly become a go-to for entertaining with G&Ts.

Phoebe Calver – 7.1

Nose: Lightly floral, a little like lavender, and refreshing from the off, there is a sweetness coming through which I hope will be there on the palate.  

Taste: The juniper has quite a kick to it, but I’m also hit with a slightly salty edge which has dried out those initial floral notes and moved them to the back. 

Finish: Floral notes see this gin out, leaving you with a hint of freshness at the very end.

Comments: The gin equivalent of sweet and salty popcorn. Something for everyone.
