A pleasant sweetness at the start gradually grows more earthy with aromas of fennel and anise seed, along with smoky, savoury spice.
An earthy, herbal, and very much botanical sweetness is well balanced by solid juniper and crisp, citrus-forward coriander, too.
A little alcohol, with pepper and the raspberry and violet notes of orris.
This is a gin with an excellent texture, pleasant intensity, and herbal sweetness that is almost perfectly tailored for a Tuxedo.
Aniseed notes right off the bat, with liqueur-like sweetness and herbal freshness. Hints of ground ginger, liquorice root and pine.
Aniseed is toned down to herbal tarragon and fennel seed, allowing juniper to come to the fore with bitter grapefruit citrus. Delightfully smooth texture.
Fennel sees this out with more luscious juniper, too.
A delicious display of aniseed flavours that needs a simple serve to show it off – a Gin & Tonic would be ideal.
