Quite a nice light gin. Lots of citrus and a core of juniper on the nose – but there is a really nice peppery, woody character to the gin. It’s slightly sweet, which helps balance out all the pepper and there are some really nice floral characteristics integrated into the whole thing. Sips quite well, mixes very well. Fantastic in a gin sour, but no suprises there.

Assessment: Highly Recommended.
