Rock Rose Smoked Orange Gin 70cl
This release uses fine lapsang souchong tea to deliver smoky notes to enhance zesty organic orange peel. Complemented by tangerine sage and lemon verbena from the distillery geodome, this is a richly complex gin with a bright bonfire nose; a palate that wakes the taste buds.
Style: London Dry
Key Botanicals: Lapsang Souchong Tea, Orange Peel, Tangerine Sage, Lemon Verbena
Nose: Subtle hints of smoke lie underneath zingy citrus notes.
Palate: The clean pine smoke from Lapsang Souchong tea excites the tastebuds and, as it settles, a candied sweet orange rises through.
Finish: The finish is long as the deep rich smoke lingers on the palate. The fresh citrus notes of lemon verbena and tangerine sage resolve into a sweetness on the back of the tongue.
