Distinctly fruity on the nose: floral pear with jammy berries such as blackberry, raspberry, and a little stone fruit.
Lovely in texture with continued fruit notes and a balanced sweetness, along with green, leafy flavours and citrus peel.
A gentle, alcoholic warmth is joined by elderflower and lingering black pepper notes.
This has good intensity of flavour, especially given its ABV, and would work well in a Bramble.
Sweet strawberry and grain notes mix to give the impression of strawberry shortcake. Orange citrus and juniper hints.
Very clean with a light, silky texture. The juniper is more prominent, with more sweet grain and berry notes and light touches of citrus and a hint of baking spice.
Slips away smoothly, leaving subtle but lingering pine and red fruit.
It packs a good flavour punch for the lower ABV. I’d try in a Mule with ginger ale.
