Tasting Notes

"Lemon, pine-y juniper, and coriander are the most prominent on the nose and palate with licorice joining in the mix on the mid-palate and finish. The cinnamon is last to make an appearance, but when it does it adds a hot pepper note to the gin. There's a richness to the gin and is only slightly sweet. It's a perfectly fine gin for a Gin & Tonic."
