Scilly Spirit Distillery - Island GinSmooth Rounded Spirit
Nose: Lovely balance of piney juniper, piquancy of cardamom, with a hint of orange, herbal lime leaf and warm familiar notes of cassia.
Palate: Full and rounded in the mouth, with soft citrus and juniper on the fore, followed by layers of fennel, fruity peppery note and subtle spice. The savoury tones of the pepper and cardamom are balanced by a touch of sweetness from the orange and fennel.
Finish: Balanced with spice notes from pepper and cardamom with warm sweet notes from the cassia. Kaffir lime delivers the subtle citrus notes on the finish, encouraging another sip!
Ideal Serve: A large measure of Island Gin over ice, garnished with a fresh kaffir lime leaf and a dried orange slice, with two measures of tonic.
Carefully chosen, and ethically sourced botanicals are steeped for 48 hours. This allows all the flavours and oils to infuse the spirit. Once the gin has been created, it is left to rest for at least two weeks to enable the flavours to meld and marry together, to create a smooth rounded spirit.
