Gibson’s Gin is made using a combination of eight botanicals; juniper berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, orris root, cassia bark, liquorice, orange peel and lemon peel.
Nose: Classic on the nose with a hint of baking spice rounding things out, Angelica, juniper, and wet pine chiefly, lending it a very classic and well-rounded nose that certainly screams gin if any nose ever has.
Palate: Dewy juniper berry, with a resinous, full-bodied edge, and then arid, parched coriander seed with a cinnamon/cassia bark tinge. The baking spices notes carry the silvery juniper through the finish with a creamy, buttery texture and a splash of orange and lemon zest.
Gentle warmth on the finish, becoming mostly juniper, at a medium length.
Really, quite nice overall.
