Review and Tasting
Sampled on 28/02/2018
(sample bottle 2017 harvest with Meadowsweet, Cowslip, Wild Thyme and Eyebright) Crystal clear.
Piney juniper forward with grassy, herbal vanilla, floral and creamy citrus aromas.
Black pepper spiced piney juniper leads to fairly classic dry gin palate with a herbal note and citrus freshness.
If this wasn’t the first “vintage gin” it was certainly one of the first. Over the years the gin has much improved and we very much like this 2017 vintage, although it is arguably quite juniper forward classic London dry in style with the handpicked Shetland botanicals reduced to a supporting role – but surely that’s what makes this a properly good gin.
