A succulent, fruity nose with oily, aromatic orange and a vegetal salinity.
A slight confectionary note to start with notes of orange sorbet and palma violets followed by earthy liquorice and a touch of spice.
An oily finish that lingers and coats the tongue with notes of grapefruit and a little black pepper.
A balanced gin with lots of sweet citrus that would work well in a Gin & Tonic or a Sweet Martini.
Deliciously zesty orange upfront, my favourite way to start, before giving way to some very strong and earthy notes.
There’s more of a sweetness here, with the orange able to expand into a more refreshing and light profile, before the earthy aspect returns and takes us to the herb garden for a handful of basil and a hit of aromatic spice.
It’s got a long life, with the spice sticking around to play.
A fun take on sweet and spicy – I’d like this kept pretty simple in a G&T.
