Phoebe Calver 8.1

Nose: I’m already intrigued by this from the first nose – thick-cut homemade marmalade and a handful of parsley picked freshly from your garden. 

Palate: Initial hits of the fruity orange marmalade appear, giving a rich mouthfeel. Then it’s back to the herbs with finely chopped parsley and piney juniper giving it the spice. 

Finish: Exactly what you would expect: clean cut and lingering. 

Comments: This gin will play perfectly when creating a new cocktail menu for your next socially distanced party.

David T. Smith 8.3

Nose: Succulent fruit notes of orange, coriander, and even a little hedgerow fruit. Perfumed and enticing. 

Palate: Creamy up front, with a sweeter character that works well with the fruit before moving to more resinous, spicy notes of juniper and coriander. 

Finish: A clean finish of black pepper and earthy angelica. 

Comments: A gin with a strong flavour profile and that would stand up well to mixing with other strong flavours. I think it would work particularly well with a grapefruit soda.
