Distilled Premium Gin - 2013
International Spirits Challenge
Nose: Sweet lavender, candied lemon peel, hints of violets and tangy juniper. Orange zest.
Palate: Zesty, rich palate. Sweet with gingerbread, juniper and spice.
Finish: Good length, with developing sweet, spicy dryness and iced tea.
I'm not a gin drinker and never have been, but bought Hubby the Ginvent Calendar at Christmas and had a sip of this gin. It's not like any other gin I've tasted and I loved it! It's a sweet gin, but not cloying and the same lovely juniper and botanical tastes and oh, it slips down so easily!
Recommended for people who say that gin is not their drink - I bet it will be after tasting this!
