Full of green aromas, with the slightly vegetal salinity of celery and some earthy coriander.
Sweet to start with plenty of honey, juniper, and hints of orris and violet. A little woodiness and mellow citrus develop on the palate over time.
A delicate lemon sweetness, reminiscent of tart au citron with a hint of pine needles.
A lightly sweet and extremely sippable gin with lots of citrus and pine; this would make a Bee’s Knees that would truly be worthy of the name!
This has a real spice-cupboard nose – cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, gingerbread – with juniper, cassia and orange peel. There’s a touch of juiciness to it, as well.
The spiciness from the nose carries on through but gets more savoury, with pepper, coriander and star anise. There’s a little citrus, waxy juniper and an aromatic note of bitters.
t’s medium in length – very spicy with a little alcohol tingle.
A real spice bomb of a gin. This could pair well with a fiery ginger ale.
