Nose
An abundance of grapefruit, bright and fresh, followed by the subtle, herbal smoke of rosemary. 

Palate
An initial jammy note of grapefruit marmalade, followed by the increasingly zesty pithiness of peel. The mid-palate brings juniper and earthy cinnamon before aromatic rosemary.

Finish
An encore of grapefruit with a slightly oily, lingering finish and a final touch of sweetness.

Comments
A well-balanced flavoured gin that would be great with tonic and its eponymous garnishes.

Score

9.2

Nose
Juicy pink grapefruit segments, before a big waft of rosemary that is slightly savoury, even saline.

Palate
Lovely pink grapefruit bitterness clinging around the mouth. More herbal rosemary notes with hints of piney juniper and drying spice. Light texture, but the heat is a bit spiky.

Finish
Little tingle on the lips and tongue as it fades with drying grapefruit and piney bitterness.

Comments
A mix with herbal tonic water would work well with this gin’s competing characters.

Score

8.0
