Camilla Brown – Young in Spirit
Price per bottle: £21-40
David T. Smith
A light shade of violet in colour, this has the fruity notes of elderflower on the nose, along with the characteristic aromatics of lavender.
Spicy coriander and zesty citrus, both lemon and lime, before a marmalade-like sweetness and a thick, slightly syrupy texture that goes well with the jamminess of the elderflower note.
Resinous lavender followed by acidic citrus notes of lemon and lime.
A pleasant spirit that highlights its core flavours with bright citrus.
Blackcurrant squash, and a floral, almost medicinal hint, like rosewater with a touch of menthol/eucalyptus in there.
The fruity, floral and medicinal notes from the nose come together to create a blackcurrant cough sweet character on the palate. It’s very soft, and quite viscous.
The blackcurrant notes get jammier and a slightly bitter menthol note joins in.
A fairly easy-going flavoured gin. It feels like it would welcome a mix with a floral or citrus tonic water.
