As a G&T, it presents as bright, crisp and refreshing. The spiced hit becomes a little more restrained, whilst still retaining enough boozy warmth to not feel drowned amongst the mixer. The serve allows the citrus character to become further emphasised – the lemon zip and sweetness of cassia are the front notes, with a really nice back note of cardamom. As the drink evolves, the aromatics seem to grow a little, with a more herbal hit of the bay and lemon verbena lingering on each sip.
Plump juniper coats the tongue, leaving you in very little doubt that this is a classic gin profile that was made to sit perfectly in the G&T serve.
