Tasting notes by the distiller

The nose

A delicate bouquet of rose, mixed with deeper cardamom and a touch of citrus.

The palate

Fruity berries merge with a floral nose to give a full-bodied, rounded gin. Bright notes ping as the juniper comes forward.

The finish

The sharpness of the sea buckthorn emerges, but once again is rounded off by berries and a juniper heart.
