Nose
Jammy fruit notes with aromas of berries and some floral spice reminiscent of meadowsweet or bison grass.

Palate
Dry, lightly tart notes of cranberry and loganberry at the front of the palate. These are followed by a slight nuttiness and tannic notes.

Finish
Tea-like tannic notes are combined with notes of flaked almonds and stone fruit pits, making the finish reminiscent of berry eau de vie.

Comments
A great example of a fruit gin – dryer than many contemporaries, with a very balanced sweetness.

Score

8.8

Nose
Strawberry and watermelon cordial. Rich notes of blackcurrants macerated in caster sugar. A light floral/herbal note, like strawberry leaves.

Palate
The fruit notes turn slightly tarter, like they have been baked until they start to catch at the edges. The texture is fairly light.

Finish
A tart note of rhubarb mingles with
the strawberries.

Comments
There’s a really pleasant berry character to this gin, but its lightness means you would have to mix gently, so as not to mask it.

Score

8.0
