Summary
A complex and sophisticated drink with a firey ginger punch. Aromas of lemon peel, ginger, valerian, chamomile and wood. Good with ginger ale, tonic or soda water. Also works in a non-alcoholic Mojito, or “Nojito.” I suspect it could also work well in a daquiri cocktail. Quite dry tasting and savoury. People who enjoy London Dry Gin’s may enjoy this. Sweeter fruit gin lovers may not. Very good quality.

Summary
A spicy ginger-led spirit with lots of character and citrus (orange and lemon peel). Well balanced, sophisticated and savoury. Lovers of dry gins will probably like this, but it may be too dry and savoury for sweet, fruit gin drinkers. Great with soda water or tonic. Classy. Exeptional quality.
