Nose: This gin sings through the medium of almonds! Enticing marzipan and fresh bakewell tart (not the iced kind) are supported by clearly recognisable juniper and juicy berries. Wonderfully rich and aromatic.
Palate: Wow, there's some serious tannic grip here with berry tartness! Berry pie with a pleasingly viscous texture as you roll it around the tongue.
Finish: Quite clean but instantly salivating with lingering spices.
Overall: Perfectly balanced, this excellent Sloe Gin can be enjoyed neat or is just screaming out to be used in cocktails. Try using it instead of Maraschino in a Martinez for example, or for a simple and refreshing serve just add tonic water.
