Nose
Comforting baking spice, with chocolate shavings, lemon sorbet, and a wisp of wood smoke.

Palate
A cosy sweetness at the start, reminiscent of Christmas cookies, with ginger, nutmeg, and cassia. This moves onto notes of candied citrus peel, before some biscuity coriander.

Finish
The finish is more floral, with residual coriander lingering on the tongue.

Comments
A gin that has spice, but does not overdo it; it would be at home with ginger ale in a Gin Buck.

Score

8.0

Nose
Burnt pastry crust on a lemon meringue pie. Liquorice cream, a hint of toffee sweetness and woody spice. Coriander, juniper, black pepper and a hint of saffron.

Palate
 Very light bodied. The juniper, creamy lemon and woody spice notes remain here.

Finish
Sweet-sour lemon and more piney notes as it fades.

Comments
A gin that shines with a light, unshowy character. I’d pop it into a glass with light tonic and see what more it has to show us.

Score

8.2
