Tasting Notes

"Lock Keeper Gin brings out the fruitier, rather than the earthy or woody, aspects of the juniper berry. Juniper takes the lead on this gin, with lesser citrus notes coming through on the finish and a bit of grain on the aroma. It's an assertive gin, suitable for standing up drinks like the Gin and Tonic."
