"There's a citrus-y aroma (more orange) along with a floral scent, but there's enough of an earthy base there so it doesn't go into Grandma's perfume territory. Juniper is present, but taking a backseat here. As you taste, there is a sweetness of a pastry dusted with fennel seeds initially. This turns into a malty quality like you'd get with a new make whisky. The finish is bitter and earthy rather than spicy. Overall, a really intriguing gin. Try in a recipe with berries/berry liqueurs like a Blackberry Gin Smash or even in a Blue Moon cocktail."
