Twisted Nose Gin
Twisted Nose Gin comes from the picturesque city of Winchester in Hampshire. It is made in very small batches in traditional copper stills. The botanical selection includes juniper, grapefruit zest, cassia bark, fennel seed, orris, angelica, lavender and, most notably, locally-grown watercress. The humble watercress offers a delicate sweetness and peppery sparkle to this wonderful London Dry gin. The name comes from the word the Romans used for watercress, "Nasturtium", which means twisted nose.
Nose: Excitingly spicy with bright peppery notes, balanced by the sweet herbs.
Palate: Crisp grapefruit comes through clean, adorned by the lively fennel and subtle floral hints. Bold pepper appears further on.
Finish: Rather long and full, with citrus lasting until the end.
Overall: An excellent craft London dry, distinctive and full of flavour.
My sister lives in Hampshire and bought me a bottle of this Gin to take home, needless to say it didn't reach home as its such a wonderful refreshing Gin. I just wish it was stocked locally here in Bedfordshire, I just have to visit my sister much more often.....

Enjoyed a couple of glasses at The Wine Cellar in Lymington this weekend. Great tasting gin and definitely worth searching out both the gin and the wine cellar.
