Sam Coyne – 8.5 

Nose: Summer strawberries coated in cream. Vanilla. There’s a faint waft of earthy juniper in there too.

Palate: Straight at you with strawberries, raspberries and a hint of vanilla cream. Mouthfeel is light. Towards the end it becomes a little more bitter and dry with the hint of green tea.

Finish: Drawn out, with a little more citrus than the palate.

Comments: Sets its stall out early doors as a fruit forward gin and duly delivers. Has a nice balance to it. 

David T. Smith – 8.0 

Nose: Soft, fruity berry notes with a little sweetness and creamy vanilla, hints of orange and earthiness.

Palate: Rich in texture and pleasantly smooth, this has an initial creamy note that makes way for plump notes of strawberry and raspberry. Any sweetness is balanced by a light, dry note. 

Finish: Earthy with a little florality, joined by an orange zestiness and a touch of pepper.

Comments: A soft and fruity gin with a creaminess and a balanced sweetness; brilliant mixed with lemon tonic.
