Bacchus Dry Gin
Price per bottle: £21-40
David T. Smith
Bold and aromatic with light citrus and floral notes, and a little woody juniper and cedar.
Smooth in texture with a measured sweetness and notes of coriander and orange, combined with meadowsweet. This has a good level of complexity and depth of flavour.
A clean finish with citrus and a leafiness reminiscent of lemon verbena and lemongrass.
A well-made, sippable gin that would be fantastic enjoyed on-the-rocks to let the flavours unfold in the glass.
Quite gentle, with juniper, coriander and lemon alongside a slight maritime note that conjures images of sea herbs and sand dunes.
Cleanly distilled with a silky texture. Angelica and oily juniper come first, before a little jammy bittersweetness, like lime marmalade, emerges alongside a gradually building warmth.
Juicy lime and crisp juniper see out the short finish.
The fresh herbal and citrussy notes in this gin would play well in something like a Basil Smash.
