nose

Initially very fresh citrus, followed by juniper and hints of a savoury saltiness

TASTE

The initial fresh citrus comes over first followed by classic juniper with more sharp and warm spices, like ginger and cassia. These flavours give way to more unusual gin flavours that are hard to pin down – a fresh, sea-inspired saltiness. These complex flavours are harmonised by a mellow buckwheat-inspired mouth feel

finish

Peppery spices enhanced by the tailed pepper carries over into a long finish, that lingers in all three dimensions.
