Vesperis Gin 70cl
From the folks over at Blackford Craft Distillery in Aberdeenshire, Vesperis Pictish Gin takes the flavour profile of Vesperis Botanical Vodka, along with the addition of a few other organic botanicals such as heather honey, heather blossom, lemon peel and of course, juniper.
Style: London Dry
Nose: crisp and clean floral note hits you first on the nose with subtle hints of coriander freshness and citrus. There is no alcohol burn on the nose here.
Palate: the initial flavour is a lovely sweetness coming from the honey infusion, a spice then takes over but this is not unpleasant.
Finish: A long, pine finish gives a lasting, woody flavour.
