Nose
A gentle marmalade sweetness of orange, chamomile, and lemon. There’s a hint of earthiness and gentian flowers, too. 

Palate
Warm and complex with lots of earthy herbal notes and delicate spice. An amaro-like quality, slightly reminiscent of Benedictine or Strega, although not so sweet. 

Finish
Oily orange peel lingers on the palate with a gentle bitterness to it. 

Comments
This is a really fun gin with great mixing potential – it’d be lovely in an Old Fashioned or nice warming hot toddy.

Nose
So. Much. Orange. Like a sticky marmalade glaze on an orange sponge cake, or popping your head in a vat of orange-laced caramel. There’s also a floral orange blossom note on top. 

Palate
Less sweet than the nose suggested but in a good way, with more floral orange tempered by juniper and earthy spice. 

Finish
Slightly bitter orange marmalade, coupled with a little spirituous prickle. 

Comments
This would make a fun Negroni, or a smashing Gin Toddy served with orange rather than lemon.
