ABV: 41.70%
Country: Ireland
Style: Contemporary

Sam Coyne – 8.5

Nose: Floral juniper – imagine yourself in an country garden. Just a stone’s throw away however is mound of earth. 

Palate: A gentle floral opening that is balanced out with a confident voice of juniper. Fruit flavours – mostly on the tropical side – come through too; banana and berries especially. Herbal – sage and coriander to close. 

Finish: A little fleeting, but on the fruitier side of things. 

Comments: Classy – control of flavours. Could make a great hedgerow Bramble?

Phoebe Calver – 8.1 

Nose: Floral but with a cinnamon stick floating in there, it’s almost festive and approaching chai latte territory which I am down for. 

Taste: The cinnamon is still there and it’s warming and incredibly smooth on the tongue but the juniper makes sure that it is recognisably gin, while keeping its herbal edge.

Finish: One of the smoothest finished of the bunch.

Comments: A really drinkable combination of fruit and spice.
