Soft, aromatic woody notes: oak and spice with pine and juniper, too. Wonderfully inviting.
Bright gold in colour, with an amazing mouthfeel – thick and luxurious. Initial notes of Crêpes Suzette make way for mellow wood, toffee, and chocolate.
Botanical notes of citrus and juniper reappear and linger for a long and interesting finish.
A well balanced product with the wood and botanicals in harmony. A lovely choice to sip on-the-rocks or in a Negroni.
Forward with vanilla and cinnamon. Perhaps one for the whisky lovers?
PUNCHY. Welcome to spice; vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and the faint sweetness of ginger. Bourbon-gin. The vanilla/juniper hybrid isn’t exactly shy. Honey barley notes then smooth out the edges.
Long and spicy – as you’d expect from something that’s spent some time in a cask.
This could really grow on you. For its style, this is some good stuff. Makes an excellent Gin Old Fashioned.
