This is a truly different gin that should not be used with slices of lemon as that kills the delicate flavour. The slight blue colour tinge is a real talking point and at 47% it packs a really great punch.

A really fragrant gin with lovely subtle bergamot and citrus finish. Super smooth but with plenty of flavour. The lovely blue colour is just an added bonus.

This gin has a nice citrous hit however the lasting taste is the bergamot making your mouth feel like you\'ve just glugged some iced earl grey tea. This is not to my taste, I\'ll be sticking to Sipsmith and Caorunn from now on.

This is a Must Have in your drinks cupboard. It is absolutely delicious - full of intense flavours, a proper strength you can TASTE and a wonderful colour. I thoroughly recommend this gin over any others. Even at the slightly hefty price I'll definitely be back for more.

A great taste. But what makes it different, is the colour. Even with tonic you can see the blue clouds, reminding of the sky on a warm day in spring.
