NEVER NEVER TRIPLE JUNIPER
The juniper is treated in three separate ways, partially steeped for approximately 24 hours, partially put fresh in to the pot at the beginning of distillation and partially in a vapour basket, in carefully selected balance.
Nose: Pine needle, brushed rosemary, lemon oil, earthy root extending into fragrant pepper.
Palate: Immediately fragrant with a bright citrus character up front. Oily and intense, the juniper is prominent, supported by the earthy undertones of angelica and orris root and extended by the addition of wooded spices and pepper.
Finish: Long and complex with a rich creaminess that dries out almost immediately. There is a changing dynamic of juniper, first bright and fragrant that develops into an earthy more resinous finish. The length is full and luxurious.

"Some pine leaves and resin, with a hint of thyme and a whisper of cinnamon and tree bark. Juniper and citrus are in a nice supporting role. Nice complexity, but the balance impresses most."
