Nose - "The nose is bright with inviting notes of lemon zest, cucumber and a faint hint of Orris." Palate - "The palate is smooth and luxurious with a little bit of heat from the alcohol. The initial flavour of the gin is slightly sweet from the lavender and citrus notes. As the gin lingers on your palate the flavours evolve and develop more savoury characters from the juniper and sage." Finish - "The finish is warm with long notes of juniper, sage, tarragon. As those savoury notes fade away, lemon zest re-emerges bright and fresh waiting for the next drink."
Conclusion - The Botanical Gin is a good example of a citrus forward contemporary gin. It works well in a dry martini. The savoury sage notes pair well with the vermouth and they are balanced nicely with the bright lemon zest. I would also imagine that this Botanical Gin would work well in a Bee's Knees.
