Nose: Saffron, glazed hot cross buns, aniseed and lemongrass. Some maltiness too.
Palate: Specifically fennel now, getting towards liquorice. This is still very much gin though, with notes of juniper and pine.
Finish: Juniper, a hint of parma violet and some lingering lemon zest.
Overall: Masons set out to create something that "wasn't just your run of the mill, off the shelf, generic gin" and we think they've achieved just that with this spicy, slightly malty number that has a pleasant fennel character.
