A delicate creaminess on the nose is combined with a soft fruitiness of peach, raspberry, and a hint of nuttiness.
An excellent mouthfeel with a slight oiliness, followed by notes of coriander and the plump berry notes of raspberry and blackberry.
More classic botanical notes of juniper and angelica.
A fruity gin with a sophisticated flavour profile and good integration of alcohol – would be great for a Gimlet.
Peach melba yoghurts and muddled raspberry compote. Fresh, bright citrus and juniper notes too.
The juniper is forward and pronounced, as is a lemon peel citrus and a woody, earthy, angelica note. Then it’s a little different with the addition of red berries.
Long and refreshing. It becomes creamier and that peach melba yoghurt note comes back too.
Impactful and justifying of its ABV without alcohol burn or spice. Fruit notes elevate well balanced classical botanicals.
