Vibrantly red in colour and overflowing with sweet, jammy raspberry aromas accompanied by a hint of anise and underlying resinous pine.
A balanced sweetness with any sugary notes quickly followed by more
dry raspberry ones, along with a nuttiness from the pips and
more botanical character developing.
A little sweeter than the palate, with a touch of vanilla butter cream before the fruitiness returns.
A jammy gin that I’d love to see in a Gimlet.
Flying Saucers and raspberry foam sweets. A little baking spice and rosewater, too, with a touch of shortcrust pastry.
The fruit and pastry notes combine to raspberry jam tarts, with a slight woody, herbaceous character underneath. Texture is a little cloying.
Not-too-sweet raspberry cordial, perhaps with a touch of lemon peel on the fairly short finish.
The pleasant, juicy raspberry character of this gin would be nice in a sparkling wine cocktail.
