Nose
Aromas of rose jelly, strawberry and raspberry make this almost reminiscent of a jam sponge.

Palate
Light, leafy herbal notes combine with juicy, slightly tart berry notes and a hint of gorse. A balanced and well-rounded spirit with minimal burn. Plump and succulent.

Finish
A little lift of lemon on the finish is accompanied by a lingering sweetness.

Comments
This has a great intensity of flavour and would work well in a refreshing Gin Collins.

Score

8.2

Nose
Afternoon tea at the Ritz – think traditional fruity cakes decorated with petals and fresh, homemade berry jam.

Palate
The florality dusting the nose is more prominent, taking the sweet edge off the strawberry jam that is still tickling the sides of my tongue.

Finish
The fruit lingers, wrapping things up in a neatly packaged berry gift box.

Comments
I’m already excited to be sipping this at a festival this summer. I’m thinking lots of fresh berries and a splash of lemonade… is that sacrilege?

Score

8.4
