Thought to be the world’s only gin distilled from honey. Production of this gin starts with honey wine made from fermented orange blossom honey. This is distilled to make the gins base spirit and this is redistilled with the botanicals which flavour the gin. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 19/05/2013

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Piney juniper, camphor and lavender with angelica and cinnamon spice (the later perhaps from cassia. Pungent and spicy yet regal nose.

Taste

Dry and clean with upfront juniper and generous herbal spice – perhaps a tad too generous. (Unusually the concentrated flavours of this gin might benefit from diluting with additional neutral spirit before hydrating to bottling strength. There again it stands up well to tonic.)

Aftertaste

Pronounced lavender and pine in a long punchy finish. Stands out for being distilled from fermented honey and not third-party produced grain neutral spirit.
