The Scilly Spirit Island Gin produced in Old Town, St Mary's in the Isles of Scilly.
On the nose, a lovely balance of Piney Juniper, Piquancy of Cardamom, with a hint of Orange, then Herbal Lime Leaf and Warm notes of Cassia.
Within the Palate it is full and rounded in the mouth, with Soft Citrus and Juniper on the fore, followed by layers of Fennel, a Fruity Peppery note and subtle Spice. The savoury tones of the Pepper and Cardamom are balanced by a touch of sweetness from the Orange, Fennel and Cassia.
In the finish, a delicious rounded Gin which fills the palate. Once the Juniper and Citrus notes fade, the Spice, Pepper and Cardamom remain, with a Warm, Sweet close from the Cassia. Unusually they don’t use Coriander within this Gin, as they feel the Kaffir Lime Leaf delivers the subtle Citrus notes, encouraging another sip!
We suggest a large measure of Island Gin over just 2-3 ice cubes, garnished with a fresh Kaffir Lime Leaf and a dried Orange slice with two equal measures of a regular Indian Tonic.
