Notably oily and powerful on the nose with bold aromas of citrus and ginger, but this would be toned down when mixed.
Strong and oily spiced flavours of fresh ginger root from the outset. It is complex, with the combination of fire and woody spice that you would expect. This develops into a woody, resinous flavour with hints of citrus.
A long finish of ginger and woody spice, with more citrus and candied ginger.
A bold gin that would shine in the right drink; I’d suggest a toddy or highball.
Stem ginger balls in syrup. Malty tea loaf with baking spices and lashings of butter. Sweet citrus and bright pine notes.
The ginger is freshly sliced in a curry this time, with chopped chillies and coriander stalks. This is followed by more stem ginger and lemon sweetness with earthy spices.
Fades smoothly with gingery warmth and lemon peel.
The ginger flavour came through well, but it could stand up to more juniper intensity. I’d like it in a lemony, citrusy serve.
