A special edition Pink Grapefruit Old Tom Rock Rose Gin released early 2019 and flavoured with organic hand-peeled pink grapefruit zest. The peel is added to the botanical basket before being vapour infused along with traditional botanicals. It is then lightly sweetened with muscovado sugar.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 02/04/2019

Appearance:

(sample bottle 2019, batch 3, No. 290) Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Zesty pink grapefruit, piney juniper and nutty angelica root with parma violets and coriander seed peppery spice.

Taste:

Intensely flavoured with dry piney juniper, zesty pink grapefruit bitter oils and floral lavender/parma violet. Surprisingly dry given that a little sugar is added to this gin.

Aftertaste:

Long dry piney juniper and zesty grapefruit finish.

Overall:

The bottle describes this as being “A classic, sweet Old Tom with a zesty finish.” It is certainly zesty with pink grapefruit and piney juniper to the fore, but is far from sweet. Indeed, despite the added sugar we consider this a dry gin.
