(bottle No. B03796) Crystal clear.
Superbly clean, fresh nose with very mild piney juniper and generous freshly zested citrus, particularly orange.
Bursts alive with sweet zesty orange citrus, moderate juniper and herbal complexity. Pink grapefruit emerges and then dominates.
Zesty, pronounced juniper finish with lingering liquorice. Not as rounded as some gins but then they're not as fresh and zesty.
Closure: Synthetic stopper
