Review and Tasting


Sampled on 04/08/2014

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Clean fresh citrusy led nose with subtle juniper, fragrant coriander and believable notes of freshly picked nettles.

Taste:

Piney juniper is more evident than on the nose with well integrated citrus and coriander. Complex and classically styled.

Aftertaste:

Dry finish with lingering liquorice, pine and citrus. Not the kind of gin we expected considering its name and packaging.
