Spirit of Wales Distillery
Price per bottle: £21-40
David T. Smith
Solid, juniper-forward notes – unusual on the nose of a fruit gin – accompanied by juicy aromas of blackberry and blackcurrants.
Soft in texture. The tartness of cranberry or lingonberry and a sweet, nutty spiciness.
The underlying gin botanicals, including juniper and angelica, come through on the finish, which is long-lasting and gets increasingly dry.
A dry fruit gin that does not have the sweet stickiness of others in the category; it would be a great partner for sparkling wine.
Very sweet red grape notes, like a chilled Beaujolais wine. Fruitiness and creaminess combine into cheesecake with raspberry coulis.
Summer fruits – raspberries, blueberries, blackcurrants – with crisp green herbal notes and juniper. It’s surprisingly light and drying in texture.
A fruity tisane-style tea with parting notes of juniper and blackcurrant leaf.
Ideal for those who prefer their flavoured gins on the drier side. Combine it with a classic dry gin in a super-fruity Bramble.
