Strawberry and lemon with some juniper. An indulgent nose that tempts you to keep sipping.
A great balance between juniper, strawberry and malty base spirit notes. Floral notes of coriander neatly complement the strawberry flavour; the crisp, slightly tart nature of the berries really comes through.
Floral fruit with a touch of vanilla and black pepper.
A particularly well-balanced flavoured gin that would be wonderful in a Gin Collins.
An initial spritz of citrus hits the nose from the off, followed up by a light and bright fruity sweetness.
The sweet fruit becomes richer with freshly chopped strawberries. It reminds me of the topping on a fresh fruit tartlet, met with a little prickly warmth of light spice and some fragrant juniper rounding it out.
The juniper lingers long after the early freshness takes its leave of absence.
The perfect addition to a summer picnic cocktail. I’m thinking a fruity gin smash.
