No.8

This lovely, slightly dry, smooth gin with just a hint of juniper in the bouquet has a flowery, rose petal beginning, reflecting the rosehip and meadowsweet ingredients. See if you can detect the slightly peppery aftertaste, not unlike some whiskey. This complex gin has many subtle taste undertones.

No.17

This gin‘s spicy bouquet, drawn from some of its ingredients of cardamom, dates and cassia, hints of the Spice Routes. The faint juniper beginning merges into the smooth, spicy body which finishes with vanilla and a hint of honey. Log fires and winter evenings seem made for this gin.
