Exotic Citrus Gin
Hayman’s of London
Price per bottle: £21-40
David T. Smith
An exciting nose that bursts forth from the glass, full of juicy fruit: in particular, clementine and mandarin notes.
A delicate texture and flavours of nuanced citrus intricately interlaced with dainty blossom, followed by classic juniper and coriander.
Neroli orange blossom with resinous pine that lingers and invites you to sip again.
This is what Contemporary gin is all about: a spirit that is still obviously a gin, but has a distinctly modern twist. I’d enjoy this neat or on the rocks.
A sweet vegetal note, like a ripe cherry tomato, which morphs into dandelion and burdock. Deep juniper, a smoky note, and a touch of cream soda.
Like someone turned vanilla-flavoured cola into a gin: a rich vanilla sweetness, like crème anglaise, earthy sarsaparilla, juniper and savoury spice.
Gloriously soft, with vanilla custard sweetness giving way to cinnamon and pine.
A beautifully made Contemporary gin that was a delight to sip. Pass me the bottle and an ice-filled glass!
