Phoebe Calver 8.1

Nose: Like taking a huge breath of fresh air while you’re on a woodland walk in the English countryside.

Palate: The palate follows the nose, with a slightly zesty burst of pine. There’s definitely a lot more citrus here, lemon and a sweet berry note that gently moves you away from the initial greenery of this gin.

Finish: Following suit yet again with a refreshing finish.

Comments: This is a delight – nothing too out there, but certainly very sippable.

David T. Smith 8.2

Nose: Green, sappy pine with a hint of buttery, toasted coconut. A touch of freshly baked bread.

Palate: A very green, slightly vegetal gin with a fresh, almost crunchy, stalkiness to it. Notes of celery become clear, along with the citrus zip of coriander, before an oily sweetness with notes of anise and fennel unfolds.

Finish: Clean on the finish with a little citrus and residual floral, leafy notes of coriander.

Comments: A gin with a distinct flavour profile. This has a lot of potential for use in
a Negroni.
