A citrus-fresh, and fruit-loaded bouquet welcomes you. A hint of spice / juniper can be sensed as well.
Palate and aftertaste
Opens with spicy freshness. Warming and rich in taste, but not heavy nor too earthy. The fruit and depth of the gin comes through here - akin to a classic gin with a rich and complex depth of flavours as you taste it.
Creating and distilling the gin is a rather tedious process - The botanicals are separately macerated in neutral grain alcohol and are distilled separately as well in a 500 litre copper still. Afterwards the separate distillates are combined to create the final flavour profile.
Great when paired with grapefruit soda and a splash of tonic
