Distiller: Joseph A Magnus
Bottler: Joseph A Magnus
Brand: Vigilant District
ABV: 42% ABV
Nose: Fresh, ripe, juicy and effervescent. Lots of great citrus, honey, apples, pears, orange and more. Light vanilla character, sweet honey, really enticing.
Taste: Fresh, crisp and complex on the palate. Juniper takes a back seat to a fruit hat like quantity of notes – cucumber, strawberry, lemon, lime, orange. Bright and sweet.
Finish: Finish is lighter here, still very fruity, but with a hint more juniper. Long, fairly rich. Loaded with that lovely apple note playing off white pepper and juniper.
Overall: This is really wild, its real fruity and light with plenty of citrus to keep things interesting. This makes a delightful gin fizz, and played really well in a dirty martini as well, which surprised me (in a good way).
