A really great gin, very interesting because the nose is actually (in my opinion) really bad, it smells like really powerful and rough stuff but taste it and wow, soft, lightly sweet with the sesame coming through at the back. Really nice.

Familiar yet exotic. The base note of juniper lasts throughout, but the herbaceous shiso is unlike anything else on the market. Lovely peppery spice from the sansho too.
My preference is a super dry martini, shaken with a piece of apple in the glass then strained (not my own recipe, but a good recommendation nonetheless!)
