Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
Nose - "The Gin appears crystal clear with rich and complex nose, floral leading on to spice, citrus and dried herbs."
Palate - "The taste overwhelms with pungent spice, liquorice and juniper, integrated with orange peel, honeysuckle and jasmine, finishing clean and fresh with noticeable alcohol and very long. An excellent gin."
