Aromas of plum that are almost sloe berry-like, with nutty raspberry and a dash of acidity.
Soft, summery fruit and a neat combination of a gentle sweetness and creaminess along with some wisps of black coffee. The sweetness is very restrained, but enough to really bring the gin together.
Dry, with the woodiness of fruit skins and a measured tannic astringency.
A complex gin with an array of berry and stone fruit notes. Its character would shine in a White Lady.
Bakewell tarts topped with glace cherries. Dried fruits steeping in sherry, ready for a fruit cake, and a touch of black cherry-infused tea.
Sour cherries and sloes with bitter black tea, vinous notes of sweet sherry and raisins, and a touch of spice. It’s light and not too syrupy.
Bittersweet fruit notes cling on into the finish, which has decent staying power.
The bittersweetness of this gin may not be for everyone, but I liked the balance. It’s making me think of Negronis and gin-based Manhattans.
