TITLE: The ascent of gin / ジンの向上


A surprisingly delicate and elegant gin. Initially displaying lots of crushed nettles, rubbed citrus peel, sharp grapefruit and a relaxed but beating juniper heart. Unusual notes of hot ceramic tiling, putty and floral fabric softeners. With water we found superbly fragrant notes of bath bombs, rainbow sherbet, bubble-gum and freshly chopped marjoram. The palate was initially full of hawthorn, crushed leaves, fresh parsley, watercress and lemon sherbets. Reduction offered us pithy citrus, lime zest, elderflower cordial, champagne jelly, fruits of the forest syrup and bergamot. Even light medical notes such as gauze and crushed aspirin began to appear.
