Clear but with large and small particles in suspension. Pale salmon pink.
Red berries (ripe raspberries and redcurrants) and strawberry shortcake with almost imperceptible juniper and subdued spice.
Faintly sweet, black pepper spiced red berries – more reminiscent of a raspberry spiced vodka than a gin.
Cracked black pepper dominates the raspberry cream soda finish. For a product labelled 'gin' this is disappointing but is a well-made spirit.
