Nose
Clotted cream and vanilla with the added complexity of baking spice – cassia and nutmeg – and a light, berry fruit character.

Palate
A clean, relatively straight-forward classic gin on the palate, which is surprising given its colour! There are also some restrained notes of summer berries and a hint of crystallised violets.

Finish
An earthy sweetness, brightened by notes of cherry blossom and hibiscus. 

Comments
A relatively classic gin with a fruity character well-suited to a gin and tonic or a Tom Collins.

Score

8.0

Nose
Lovely jammy raspberry notes, with hints of sweet vanilla cake batter and lavender.

Palate
The sweetness of the raspberries (hints of raspberry jam and fresh fruit dusted with icing sugar) is nicely balanced with a gin botanical base. It’s clean and crisp, not at all syrupy.

Finish
It dries as it fades, with lingering leafy notes of raspberry and a hint of juniper.

Comments
A lovely example of how grown-up a flavoured gin can be. Its crispness would help make a lovely rosé spritz.

Score

8.8
