Price per bottle: £21-40 (US$27-53)
David T. Smith
Lots of woody pine and juniper; reminiscent of an evergreen forest with sappy wood and even a hint of smoke.
Lots of juniper, accompanied by some minerality and citrus, especially lime. More earthiness follows with angelica and the sweetness of liquorice.
A crisp, clean finish with a gentle warmth. There’s a final sparkle of juniper with notes of wood and pine needles.
A good choice for big fans of juniper – fitting for a classic gin.
A woodland treat. So earthy and green with lots of piney juniper coming through.
A light mouthfeel, initially piney juniper, but develops into citrus. Green notes of angelica soon follow.
A straight-forward earthy and green finish.
Just quietly straight forward stuff – if you enjoy your gin green and classic, this is one for you.
