Made in the London dry style and packaged in a distinctive peacock-blue bottle, this gin has mild aromatics and fleeting sweetness on the palate chased by citrus, juniper and spice. The finish is crisp and assertive, even slightly hot at 94 proof, but that won’t matter once mixed into a tall gin-and-tonic or Tom Collins.

Clear. Aromas of toasted Christmas fruit cake, roasted pecan, and delicate brown spices follow through on a supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with notes of herbal juniper, molasses, candied lemon and orange peels on the palate. Finishes with a bold wave of peppery spice, dusty minerals, banana taffy, and pine. An exciting, very different roller coaster of flavors that should inspire unique cocktails.
