Review and Tasting
Sampled on 17/03/2021
Pine forest and buttered croissant.
Clean classically styled dry juniper-forward, lightly spicy gin mellowed by its subtle creamy mouthfeel and salty sweetness.
Long finish with lingering salty buttered croissant.
Jake Burgers' Charles Dickens-inspired revival of a gin palace staple is worthy of its "Celebrated" name. This, alongside their Old Tom, is hopefully the start of a series of such gins.
