RRP 75

A high-strength and highly aromatic gin, with an effusive bouquet that summons juniper berries, various citrus (orange, lemon and lime) and cardamom.

It's just as explosive on the palate, slightly sweet and entertaining enough to drink neat, although I prefer it with tonic water and ice. It's so full of character it would be a pity to use it in complex cocktails.

700mL; 41.8 per cent alcohol.
