"Spice and juniper on the nose with vibrant spice and citrus. Soft and rounded palate, leading to mostly juniper freshness, as well as some sweet lime notes. Very good interaction between the botanicals and wood notes, with a long, lingering finish and hints of gingerbread."

Australia

"Sweet floral, and not a touch of juniper. Melon, lime and more sweet fruit. Creamy, strawberry sweets. More lively on the palate. Rounded, sweet, but with some vibrancy. Sweet strawberry finish,. "

Iceland

"Celery, leaves, white pepper… some lime peel too. More savoury, vegetal notes follow on the palate, as well as some full, floral notes, as well as tomato and peppery spice, leading into some toasty, grainy notes."

"Lovely smoky, woody notes and clean, dry, earthy peat. Pepper, coriander and celery… a decidedly fresh and vegetal gin. Gentle, with a touch of peat on the palate. Peat, leather and sweet grain on the palate. A great marriage of scotch and gin. "
