Darnley's Original Gin - 70cl - 40% ABV
A classic gin smell wafts out of the glass, though there's a hint of something altogether different poised beneath. Strong citrus and soft florals dance around, with lemon peel and elderflower adding a thoroughly modern dimension to proceedings. To taste, the flowers coat the tongue first, laying a delicate blanket upon which the juniper, lemon and warm coriander can sit. It's so, so soft, with a hint of malt and a subtle bitterness that clashes with tonic in a spectacularly mouthwatering fashion.
