According to Heston, “This gin has a fantastic balance of earthy, aromatic notes of bergamot and a citrusy tang of lemon.” Launched November 2012.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 03/12/2012

Appearance:

Translucent but with off-putting small and medium snow storm-like white particles in suspension.

Aroma:

Pungent bergamont, kaffir lime, lime zest, lemon verbena and thyme.

Taste:

Astringent spruce needles and pine sap with lime zest and tea tannin wormwood-like bitterness.

Aftertaste:

Lingering tannic bergamot and citrus bitterness. Sampled neat or in a Martini then the tea tannins are too dominant but mix with tonic water and you’ll find yourself with an Earl Grey flavoured G&T.
