Complex and wide-ranging spice: anise, caraway, ginger, cumin, and nutmeg.
An excellent texture and even more spice notes on the palate with lots of woody spice reminiscent of gingerbread and Christmas cake. Juniper notes are present, but very restrained.
Peppery notes toward the finish, with angelica and a little juniper-pine.
A flavoursome gin which would work well with tonic, especially the mediterranean or perhaps an angostura tonic.
A big bouquet with floral notes, lemon peel and an aniseed note too.
Lemon and a walnut note upfront. Not an overwhelming amount of juniper, but a touch makes itself known. Angelica, a chocolate note and some woody spice. Mint comes through at the end.
Long, with more of the earthier wood notes and citrus.
Great variety and depth – the mouthfeel is oily and unctuous too. A good option as a sipper to enjoy neat.
