Review:

"Clear. Delicate aromas of pepper jelly, floral bath talc, pine sap, and lemon curd with a satiny smooth, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a creamy custard, lemongrass, herb and spice flourish. A great combination of vibrancy and elegance."

Review:

“Clear. Very mild aromas of toasted tomato bread do not suggest gin and follow through on a round, silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with raisin bread and cereal notes followed by tangy citrus custard and piney floral juniper on the long zesty, peppery finish. A very well made, mild juniper gin that will be great in martinis.”

Review:

“Clear. Mild aromas of buttercream, candied citrus peel and anise follow through on a round, silky entry to a dryish medium body with notes of banana taffy and minerals. Finishes with long, very smooth fade. A pristine, poised vodka for sipping neat or in martinis.”

Review:

Clear. Very clean and pure mineral and cream aromas follow through on a soft, satiny entry to a dryish, oily medium body with fantastic suppleness and smoothness. Finishes with a long lightly pepper, talc, balsa, foam rubber, and meringue accented fade. Exceptional smoothness.

Review:

Clear. Sweet sugar lemon peel, custard, and floral juniper aromas. A supple, satiny entry leads to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with delicate sweet citrus marmalade, piney juniper, and pink peppercorn flavors. Finishes with a sweet spicy pepper fade. Very nice, understated gin for stirred martinis.

Silver Medal

"Highly Recommended"

Review:

Clear. Neutral wet stone, dried geranium, and cream aromas. Very round and glycerous. A supple, creamy and high quality vodka with a hint of citrus spray, delicate herbs, wet stones, and white pepper. Definitely a gin for the vodka crowd, but a too understated to excite those who prefer London dry gins.
