A lovely fruitiness on the nose – apple
and berries – that is clean and inviting.
Green piney notes to start, before more spicy flavours of coriander develop. A very well-balanced and cleanly distilled product.
Final flavours of grapefruit and citrus linger on the palate with a pleasant crispness.
A good all-rounder of a gin, but
I think it would work particularly well in a gin and tonic.
Floral notes of chamomile and elderflower. Then there’s a sweet herbal note with a touch of blackcurrant cordial, accompanied by runny honey on white toast.
Very light. Notes of honey and fruit cordial continue, joined by juniper, angelica, herbal coriander and a touch of black pepper.
An echo of the palate’s herbal and fruity notes see this out.
This delicate gin could lend nice sweetness and florality to an Aviation.
