Review and Tasting


Sampled on 19/11/2014

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Menthol, eucalyptus, juniper and coriander with black pepper corns, fennel, aniseed, cardamom, black liquorice and light citrus zest.

Taste:

Dry, herbaceous, peppery and well-balanced with the plethora of botanicals harmoniously presented. Botanivore is a classic gin in style, if not in flavour - juniper is present but integrated rather than domineering other botanicals such as orange, coriander and fennel. There’s a hint of black liquorice although it’s not a botanical used.

Aftertaste:

Long and dry with cracked black pepper leading waves of herbal and citrus. Slightly bitter herbal, rooty notes.
