The tart sweetness of candied fruit peel is followed by a green, leafy stalkiness.
An intense and oily flavour profile that is simply packed full of character: the sweetness of parma violet sweets is combined with lavender and pine needles.
Botanical flavours coat the tongue before a long finish with notes of menthol, cedar and black pepper.
A powerful gin that would stand up well to heavy mixing.
Imagine putting your head firmly in your kitchen garden’s herb pot. Some really punchy thyme.
The thyme is still with us, but right behind it is a sweet hint of citrus zest and that well-oiled juniper that we know and love.
Traditional and botanical-heavy, but it packs a punch with the pine notes still hanging around on the finish.
There’s plenty of character here. I’d be tempted to test it out in a Negroni and see how it stands.
