Review and Tasting
Sampled on 30/11/2018
(sample bottle batch #01) Crystal clear.
Pine and camphor juniper, ginger, zesty lemon, sage, coriander, nutty angelica and wonderfully aromatic florals.
Dry and juniper forward with well judged and balanced floral notes. Wonderfully clean and crisp with generous botanicals.
Complex floral notes continue throughout the long dry juniper dominant finish.
Gretchen may be a floral gin but those floral notes are subtle and complex lays of character interleaved within a classically juniper forward and London dry style gin.
