A lively array of citrus: lemon, lime, and grapefruit with a dash of floral coriander.
Exceptionally juicy: full of plump, fruity citrus notes that are neatly balanced by classic juniper and angelica. The result is a refreshing contemporary gin that nonetheless is firmly rooted within the spirit’s tradition.
A long, juicy finish of lime with succulent melon and a pleasantly clean dryness too.
A fabulous gin that would be stupendous in a gin and tonic.
There’s a definite freshness to it, like a light coastal breeze. With time come juniper, grapefruit-like citrus, coriander and an earthy note of angelica.
It hits the tongue with an intense whack of classic gin flavour. There’s also a honey sweetness to it and an oiliness in the mouthfeel here.
It’s warm, almost peppery, on the way out, with a final flourish of piney juniper.
This gin packed quite a flavoursome punch. It’s a solid contender for a Martini, I feel.
