Sam Coyne – 8.7
Nose: Wonderfully open and forward. Apples and ginger, along with something more floral.
Palate: Lovely rich texture, with juniper, coriander and lots of citrus initially. Becomes fruitier, with a slight orange note, before a gentle ginger note comes to the fore, along with a freshly brewed green tea.
Finish: Ginger lingers although gradually a slightly grassy note comes through.
Comments: Really good, flavoursome stuff that still stands true as a gin. Would try long with a very light tonic.
David T. Smith – 8.3
Nose: Bright and fragrant with garden-like aromatics, including leafy lemongrass, a touch of ginger spice, and a splash of piney juniper.
Palate: Packed full of flavour with oily coriander notes that provide floral, citrus, and spiced elements.
Finish: Lingering flavours of juniper and woody angelica, before pink grapefruit and black pepper.
Comments: An especially citrusy and spicy gin that’s fresh and revitalising and would work well with lots of ice, ginger ale, and a slice of orange.
