(bot N0. 08B1460) Crystal clear
Floral, mineral nose with aromas of juniper, coriander and lime zest with fainter hints of fresh root ginger and rose water.
Piney juniper notes rightly predominate on the huge palate with fresh coriander right up there and lime zest close behind. Spicy notes of nutmeg, ginger and sweet liquorice follow, along with floral flavours.
Nouaison is bigger and spicier than G’Vine’s Floraison, making it more suited to traditionalist gin drinkers.
