Bethany Whymark – 8.2
Nose: Green and leafy. Stalky coriander, lemongrass and pine. Delicate lemon peel. Elderflower cordial and a touch of white peach.
Palate: More green juniper and coriander notes, with an umami hint of soy sauce and chestnut mushroom. Pithy lemon.
Finish: Resinous pine and a continuing savoury-salty note see out the finish.
Comments: A slightly unconventional but cleanly distilled London Dry that would pair nicely in a drink with dry vermouth.
Phoebe Calver – 8.5
Nose: Beautifully light juniper upfront, freshness of a forest on a wet day, citrus and heather honey.
Palate: A hint of liquorice, with more heather honey herbal notes, clean-cut juniper and fresh sweet citrus.
Finish: A whole lot of juniper, with more of that liquorice note giving it a kick.
Comments: It’s pretty clean-cut, but then the liquorice note brings some real sass. I’m definitely trying this as a contender for my go-to G&T.
