Soft, ripe summer berries –strawberries and blackberries – along with elderflowers.
Fruit and a little cream to start, followed by sweet, earthy angelica and hints of anise and fennel.
Dry citrus to finish, along with a lingering spiciness.
With good complexity and balance, this would work well in a Gin & Tonic.
Raspberries upfront, then pineapple and lime peels.
A pine-fresh juniper note up front, before coconut yoghurt comes to the fore. There’s a little coriander in there and perhaps some green herbal note. Leads to a strong, peppery spice.
Desiccated coconut and a subtle sweetness. Think Bounty bars.
Lots of interesting notes that are balanced superbly. Indian tonic will do a great job of drawing out the pineapple and coconut, and dialling down the spice a little.
