Tasting Notes

"This is so darn pretty and sweet, you just want to take it to a box social. An aroma of sugared bush berries and bubblegum with flowers in the background start you off. The bubblegum follows onto the palate with additional sweetness but overripe citrus fruit prevents any cloying sensation. The finish is soft with mild dry juniper. Overall, a simple gin but pleasing from start to finish. This would be ideal for a Pink Lady."
