Nose
Fragrant citrus leaf that is part lemon thyme and part lemon balm (Melissa officinalis). There is also a biscuity combination of citrus and spice from coriander seed.

Palate
A cracking mouthfeel: it’s silky and slightly oily, but in a nicely balanced way. Chocolate orange and clementine, as well as a touch of grapefruit.

Finish
Citrus lingers with just enough alcohol to make the tip of your tongue tingle.

Comments
A lively gin, well put together and with great versatility – it would definitely shine with citrus mixers.

Score

8.4

Nose
Blackcurrants and piney freshness. It reminds me of a vindaloo curry paste, with sharp vinegar and fragrant toasted spices.

Palate
Classic notes of coriander, juniper and lemon, with soft red fruits and drying, peppery warmth. There’s a little bittersweetness to it.

Finish
Touches of lemon zest, sweet woodiness and drying, almost tannic notes as it fades.

Comments
I really liked the nuanced nose on this – a mix with herbal tonic water could play to its savouriness.

Score

8.1
