Crisp, resinous green notes and plenty of juniper, along with the dry, slightly tannic fruit of the lingonberry.
Some initial, nutty almond bitterness, followed by cherry, cranberry, and lingonberry fruit. Green, piney notes develop, reminiscent of forest walks.
Dry on the finish, with nutty lingonberry and a final sparkle of pine.
An excellent, complex representation of lingonberry that is truly in harmony with the underlying gin. Begs to be mixed in a Negroni.
Like a Welsh bara brith: dried fruit, baking spices, a touch of fortified wine and a slight bitterness, like tea tannins. There’s a touch of royal icing sweetness, too.
It’s got an interesting mouthfeel. The sweet and spicy cake notes are still there, getting stickier.
Piney juniper and more bittersweet orange notes.
This gin held my attention, evolving as it went. With all those spice and orange notes, it would be a good contender for a Negroni.
