Green, with a hint of herbaceous sage and thyme and some resinous notes, too. Fresh and inviting.
Coriander seed followed by the floral earthiness of angelica. This has loads of flavour and oiliness, and the middle of the palate has the vibrant citrus zestiness of orange and lemon.
Long-lasting, weaving between the gentle sweetness of angelica and resinous pine needles.
A powerful gin that would stand up well to heavy mixing; I’d enjoy it with freshly squeezed orange juice.
Very herbal and stalky with coriander (the leaves and seeds), a hint of tarragon, and grassy notes. A little lemon peel.
It’s still quite ‘green’ with coriander, juniper and savoury, dusty spice – perhaps mace or nutmeg? A little crunchy, vegetal sweetness.
Fairly hot given the ABV. Grassy and juniper notes linger.
The heat of this surprised me, but I really liked the green flavours – they could potentially be tamed with a Mediterranean-style tonic.
