    This style is not legally defined, but in general, this style of gin is mildly sweet and is not juniper-forward. It falls in between London Dry Gin and Genever in terms of sweetness level.

Tasting Notes

"A touch of cucumber and some juniper berries welcome you on the nose, as well as a touch of ginger, chamomile and elderflower. The palate is lovely well-rounded, smooth and sweet with notes of honey, resin and soft wood spices. Superb stuff! How can you not immediately want to make a Tom Collins after tasting this?"
