This is a limited-edition navy-strength gin from FEW Spirits and makes for a cracking G'n'T or Martini.
FEW Spirits hails from Evanston in the United States of America, a city that suffered Prohibition for over one hundred years thanks to many of its advocates hailing from its dry streets. Thankfully Evanston is now home to this excellent craft distillery which takes its name ironically from the initials of Frances Elizabeth Willard, a key figure in the Temperance Movement.
Nose: Juniper blossom makes itself present first followed by mulling spice and a grainy quality.
Palate: The body has a little weight behind it with herbaceous notes off-set with candied orange peel and fragrant juniper.
Finish: The finish is warm and peppery with a little spice on the tail-end.
Overall: This is a herbaceous medium-bodied gin with elegant notes of delicate juniper.

This gin (or at least the bottle from the batch I have) is far more unusual than the tasting notes here describe. This does have the normal juniper flavours you would expect, but there is also a very strong note of aniseed which is definitely one of the principle aromatics. The gin even goes a little cloudy in a tonic mix as you see with Pastis or similar. It's not unpleasant (if you like aniseed) but definitely not an everyday drink - best drunk longer than your usual gin I find - I definitely wouldn't let it near a martini.
