A Mediterranean treat. You can imagine walking through the lemon and lime orchards. Sugary. Jelly-babies. Unusual, but
Light mouthfeel. Begins with rose-water. Juniper and coriander. Liquorice adds another dimension. Pink-grapefruit and apple.
Back with the jelly-babies. Short
and sweet. Truly bountiful.
Good fun. One for lovers of sweet gins. Elderflower tonic for a G&T. A cocktail master could go to town on the jelly-baby note too.
I like the nose on this a lot, promising. Although it is strongly juniper forward, it’s fresh and zesty and is desperately making me want a sunny holiday.
The citrus has moved to the back here and makes way for (shocker – more juniper) a sweet spice that almost moves towards parma violets, combatted by a nutty edge.
It’s a very clean finish with the sweet spice remaining.
I have a feeling this could be a lot of fun in a sweet and spicy cocktail.
