Tasting Notes

"The aroma of this gin really does resemble a berry orchard - not only because the scent of ripe, fresh berries is so up front, but also mint and Angelic root. The strawberries continue to burst onto the palate, along with more of that mint, but the more gin-ny notes of juniper and citrus come through on the midpalate. The finish is dry, with lingering fresh strawberry flavors without any sugary sweetness. The overall effect is that it tastes like a juniper-flavored strawberry gin than the other way round. To keep tasting the fresh strawberry flavors, it's best sipped on the rocks, or with a splash of soda or tonic. "
