Tasting Notes

"The strong smell of paint thinner is a stubborn guest in the aroma. No amount of waiting will make it leave. You have to push past it to find black-pepper oil and dry juniper. The palate is sweet with berries and citrus fruit, and the texture is quite oily. The gin finishes with the unlikely pair of green peppercorns and soap. Put this in a Gin & Tonic with a heavy citrus garnish."
