Sam Coyne – 7.9 

Nose: Savoury first, with a seaside aroma and then more floral elements and lemons.

Palate: Like a very light salted caramel, liquorice and cereal notes. Coriander comes through and then juniper makes its presence felt.

Finish: Saline notes remain along with a green samphire note comes to the fore.

Comments: Different and actually good fun. Enough of a classical flavour to appeal to the masses but a genuinely tasty point of difference. Hard to look beyond a Dirty Martini for this one.

David T. Smith – 7.4

Nose: Floral, aromatic, and earthy, with angelica, violet, and liquorice with citrus leaves and lemon peel.

Palate: Unusual from the start with salted liquorice. You’ll notice more herbal and vegetal notes alongside juniper.

Finish: The salinity persists, but develops into notes of citrus and salted caramel and toffee at the end.

Comments: This is a particularly unusual gin that will not be for everyone. It pairs well with Mediterranean tonic water and will likely be a good fit in a Dirty Martini.
