Nose: Oily juniper nose, quite subdued and subtle with pleasing notes of freshly cracked black pepper and liquorice.
Palate: Fruity, spicy palate entry, offering up notes of violet and berry fruits. The tang of the gin is prominent, complimented beautifully by the softly herbaceous vermouth, which offers a sophisticated wine-like character to the mouthfeel.
Finish: Long, spiced, tingling finish, ending up on juniper berries and cinnamon.
Overall: A lovely balance of gin and vermouth, with a refreshing yet spicy character.
