Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/06/2017

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

White pepper, celery salt, piney juniper and earthy parma violet. Dilution releases whiffs of fresh flat leaf coriander.

Taste

Black pepper spice, piney juniper, liquorice, with nutty woody angelica, mild cinnamon and ginger. Curry leaf is detectable but only due to being prompted to look for it by the list of ingredients.

Aftertaste

Zesty citrus, herbaceous juniper and black pepper spice. Perhaps with curry leaf as finish fades.

Overall

This gin may be distilled with exotic ingredients such as curry leaf but it is classically restrained in style – a true London dry – just with subtle hints of a more exotic place than London.
