43% ABV; distilled from almonds, lemon peel, licorice, juniper berries, orris root
, angelica, coriander, cassia bark.
The gin's angelica root and angelica seed have dry and earthy characteristics; coriander seeds add spicy citrus notes; liquorice lends a bittersweet, woody quality; almonds leave a trail of marzipan and soft spice; orris root
adds flavours not unlike Parma violets, while the dried peels of lemons and Seville oranges sharpen the combination and heighten the effect of the carefully-balanced medley.
The combination of 12 botanicals, such as grapefruit and Seville orange peels, bitter almond, and orris root
, as well as rare Japanese Sencha tea and Chinese green tea, provides a smooth, earnest, and distinctive taste.
The smoky rose, unique to the area, takes centre stage whilst the heady jasmine, blended with the dryness of geranium and orris root
, allows the heart to unfold revealing the floral depths of the fragrance.
Fixatives such as oak moss, orris root
, calamus root, cellulose, citrus peels and spices help absorb, preserve and release the fragrance of your blend.
