Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/04/2016


Clear transparent but not bright.


Tonic water quinine with pink grapefruit juice and zest, cucumber, and faint honeydew melon, turmeric and green apple.


Tonic water, pink grapefruit citric acid, cucumber, green apple, black pepper and faint floral notes. More faint turmeric spice. When mixed with soda, cucumber and cucumber skin flavours become dominant with citrus notes present but much subdued.


Lingering grapefruit citric acidity, green apple, and cucumber.


Best appreciated mixed with soda, Wingfield produces a refreshing lightly (very lightly) alcoholic long drink suited to a summer’s afternoon. A complex blend of citrus, elderflower, cumber and spices, its cucumber and mild grapefruit that shine. It could use a tad more alcohol so consider fortifying your serve or it could be a very dull afternoon.
