Light and fragrant with a definite confectionary note. Bold aromas of vanilla and citrus sherbert that almost “fizzes” in the nostrils!
Notes of crystallised violet with liquorice and aniseed make this reminiscent of an old-fashioned sweet shop. Sweetness is followed by notes of apple, pear, and a more dry woodiness.
A clean finish with a lasting earthiness and a touch of sweetness.
A particularly unusual gin, but one that is in balance. It would work well in a Bramble.
Pancakes with bacon, maple syrup, banana ice cream, and a touch of soy sauce. Demerara sugar with a hint of sweet rice pudding.
Dominant brown-sugar sweetness that turns into pear drops and tinned peaches. A hint of black cherry and a leafy, peppery note.
Hints of cherries, maple syrup and sweet dark chocolate, with a bit of a spicy hum.
While I would have liked to see a bit more juniper, the unusual profile of this gin was fascinating. One to mix with cola!
