Pungent zesty citrus – particularly lime, with Indian curry spice notes and faint lavender. Juniper is fairly subdued. Water amplifies citrus zestiness.
Orange zest leads with black pepper spice, fresh celery, mild piney juniper and cereal-like, faintly nutty notes.
Piney juniper, black pepper spiced finish.
A very clean citrus zesty and spicy American gin with moderate juniper influence.
