Review and Tasting
Sampled on 30/01/2018
Clear, deep scarlet red.
Pungent cherry – almond stone and jammy fruit with underlying gin.
Superbly balanced. Tart lightly tannic cherry and dry gin botanicals are lifted by sweet jammy fruit and delicate almond with invigorating peppery and cardamom spice.
Long, fruity spicy finish.
Sour Cherry Gin is an apt name for this fruity delicately spicy gin which is much drier, more alcoholic, and far more interesting than a traditional sloe gin. This spirit (rather than liqueur) is as good in a cocktail as it is in a hip-flask and is further proof that Luxardo + cherry = tasty.
