Seven Crofts (70cl, 43%)
Nose: Rich, round aromatic notes of juniper, pepper with a noticeable hint of ripe plum
Taste: Opulent notes of perfumed forest fruit and a suggestion of woodland. The juniper is assertive with spicy hints of coriander and pink pepper and a long, warm finish.
With Tonic: Tonic still allows gin to shine (1 part gin to 2 parts tonic) on the nose. Served with orange slice (massage oils from zest into gin). Palate is balanced with tonic softening the alcohol allowing the distinctive character of the gin to assert itself.
Finish: A fresh, clean G&T with balanced and elegant yet distinctive flavours of juniper, pepper, orchard fruit and a poised, spicy finish.
The Perfect Serve: Serve in a straight glass with lots of ice, a good quality tonic and garnished with a slice of orange.
