Pungent rosemary, lavender, nutty angelica and piney freshness.
Dry lavender notes lead with rosemary and piney juniper close behind.
Fades with coriander, lavender and rosemary and muscular black pepper and cardamom spice.
Distilled in Switzerland, this gin is designed to have an Argentinean character with Latin American botanicals including rosemary, Mate and distillate from Malbec wine, which along with lavender dominates. Ojo de Agua has some interesting flavours but they are far too exuberant producing a “gin” with aggressive spice that lacks harmony and subtlety.
