St George Spirits
Price per bottle: £21-40
David T. Smith
Perfumed and floral with cut pear, elderflower, rose and apple. Hints of grappa and eau de vie.
A strong character with warmth from the alcohol coming through; the character of the base comes through too, and complements the botanicals well. Fruity raisin and berrys with sweet, herbal bread and fennel.
Meatloaf with menthol pepper.
Powerful. Would work with sweeter tonics like many in the US. It’d make a respectable Bramble too.
Nutty and autumnal with apples, pears, cereal and warm baking spices, earthy pine and leafy notes.
Smooth, creamy and restrained with vanilla, cedar, almonds, violet and rose.
Apple crumble with vanilla ice cream, then dry and slightly vegetal with the alcoholic strength leaving a warm glow in the mouth.
A strong spirit that will warm up winter evenings. Garnish with a skewer of sweet chestnuts.
