Bethany Whymark – 8.5

Nose: There’s a slight floral sweetness to this, like elderflower berries. Pungent lemon peel and a little pastry – like lemon curd tarts. Piney juniper and a touch of sage. 
Palate: Bright, zippy lemon notes on the palate with citrussy coriander and juniper, and a tiny hint of floral orris and white tea. 
Finish: It fades on weak black tea with lemon and blossom honey – a bit of a hot gin toddy vibe.
Comments: A cleanly distilled and pleasantly flavoured Contemporary gin that would make a lovely Tom Collins.

Phoebe Calver – 8.3

Nose: Very bouncy, with immediate hits of heather honey, scraped-out vanilla pod, dried lavender, elderflower berries and just a hint of juniper.
Palate: Like wildflowers soaked in elderflower cordial, followed by orange marmalade and honey drizzled on rye toast.  
Finish: Sweetness and light here, with lingering vanilla cream. 
Comments: So much character on the nose, then it mellows out and settles into itself, with a warm and characterful palate.
