Burnt orange-gold in colour. Beautiful aromas of marmalade and sponge cake.
Seville orange – perfectly capturing the oiliness of the peel and the succulence of the juice – as well as complex notes of caramelised fructose. The citrus flavours gradually make way for pine and woody spice.
Lingering citrus along with a sweet woodiness and final zing of orange.
A superb aged gin that would work so well in so many drinks, from highballs to a Martinez, or mixed with sparkling wine.
Lemon and orange peel, glacé cherries, creamy oak, almost biscotti, fennel and, later, brown sugar.
Juniper and coriander come through with peppery oak warmth. More vibrant orange notes balance with pale caramel sweetness.
Warm and soothing, with spicy oak, pine, and subtle chocolate notes.
Beautifully composed, and the touch of the barrel is skilfully light. It would really shine in a Gin Old Fashioned or Martinez.
