Herbal with celery salt and faintly earthiness along with reassuring piney juniper. Light liquorice and floral camomile.
Juniper forward and beautifully balanced with herbal notes either side of the tongue. Well integrated flavours.
More herbal in the finish with delicate spice, long lingering liquorice and celery salt.
First and foremost, this is a classic London dry, juniper forward gin. The “Lovage” name is perhaps deceptive as it suggests this is a one-dimensional flavoured gin. It’s far from that with lovage well integrated with the other botanicals. An interesting limited edition with which to experiment.
