Seven Crofts Fisherman’s Strength 70cl
Distilled and produced in Ullapool, this gin is inspired by the strength of the towns thriving fishing community.
Nose: A powerful nose (as you might expect for a navy strength gin) but definitely juniper led with forest floor notes coming through with ripe blueberry, cracked black pepper, pink pepper and a touch of spicy coriander.
Palate: Assertive (again as you would expect of a higher ABV gin), although once you have grown accustomed to the alcohol, the juniper on the nose presents itself nicely on the palate. Opulent blue and black fruits and baked apple at first with pink pepper coming through, along with coriander which manifests itself particularly on the long lasting, elegant finish.
Try with a plain tonic and a twist of orange.
