Beautifully fragrant, rich, green leafy notes that are accompanied by some savoury and menthol aromas, with refreshing, herbal lemongrass.
A superb mouthfeel that really coats the tongue. Bold flavours of coriander seed are followed by a little sweet liquorice, zesty citrus, and spicy leafy notes.
Freshly cut green apple with sweet baking spice and a hint of szechuan pepper.
A bold gin with lots of mixing potential. A Red Snapper is an obvious choice for me.
Like someone has pulled out one of those giant pepper mills and left a good crack of it under my nose. Herbal notes of bay and sage, bright juniper and lemon.
The pepper calms down enough to let those herbal flavours shine – more bay and an anise hint of tarragon, paired with more juniper highlights.
Black pepper hangs about with a little herbal freshness.
I’m glad the peppery intensity of the nose subsided to reveal the lovely flavours underneath. A Red Snapper is calling!
