I tried this gin when I was new to the Martini (about a year ago), and I didnt like it. I was being very traditional (or so I thought) in my approach. Martinis were dry, and that was all there was to it. Then I bought a book called "Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails." I used this gin in a number of drinks, including the Corpse Reviver # 2 with good results. So, this evening, I tried the 1950s version of the Martini which is 3 shots of gin plus orange bitters and a half shot of vermouth. After my first sip, I could have sworn I heard angels singing.

The heady juniper made me suspect I would be overwhelmed by the it, but this is definitely not the case. The taste was very delicate and balanced, almost ethereal and understated. Warming end but no burn. Delicious!

This is both a wonderful Gin for a beginner and a treat for the jaded palate. It has a wonderful light touch of botanicals and has the smell and delicacy that only organic ingredients carefully distilled give that sets it apart from the average gin. Well worth a try!
