A crisp nose with earthy spice
and juniper: clean and classic.
This gin has an elegant intensity: there is a little salinity to the mouthfeel, but it’s not too oily, with notes of citrus and coriander and a decidedly chocolatey character.
Quite creamy on the finish, with a note of green juniper and lingering pepper with a lovely, gentle warmth.
A great example of a classic London Dry; a good all-rounder for a gin and tonic, Negronis and Martinis.
Aroma is botanically intense and oily. Notes of juniper, orange citrus, and earthy tones of cinnamon and a pinch of coriander.
It has a lick of heat and a slightly waxy texture. Good juniper notes with zesty citrus peels, and spice and sweetness from cinnamon and liquorice.
It leaves you with some lingering juniper and citrus around the mouth.
A lovely classic character and nice spicy warmth. I can see it making a great Negroni.
