Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/06/2017


Hazy, brick red.


Wonderfully aromatic. Like walking into a gin distillery's botanical store with pronounced juniper oils, burnt orange peel, herbal aromas, peppery spice and cassia.


Enlivening spicy, herbal, fruity palate with strong piney juniper, invigorating cracked black pepper and clove spice, Lemon Verbena, zesty marmalade and tannic Earl Grey tea.


Long spicy finish with scorched oak and lingering cracked pepper spice.


Spicy, fruity and with a decent alc./vol., this is the summer cup that rescued and reinvigorated the category.
