Fresh but subtle citrus and leafiness; the citrus gradually moves towards aromas of lemon and grapefruit jam, making it almost breakfast-like.
The faintest hint of sweet creaminess to start. Coriander leaf provides a light floral tone. More earthy floral notes of angelica root then develop, along with a dash of pepper.
There is a final, comforting glow after sipping, but overall the gin is crisp and clean.
A gin that is notably traditional in character and would be great in a range of classic gin drinks.
Dusky spice. There’s a bit of powdered ginger and nutmeg, with piney juniper and orange citrus, sweet like tangerines.
Juicy orange segments, canned with syrup, with woody juniper, sweet-spicy ginger and more musky sweetness, too.
Spicy gingery heat, with orange notes that are more bittersweet.
The spice and orange character of this nicely classic gin really makes me think of Negronis.
