Tasting notes: A very well-balanced gin, with a hint of floral botanicals providing an uplifting feeling of walking through a summer garden. The gin, however, remains a recognisable London Dry traditional gin. The floral notes are not perfumed in nature and don’t appear too soon on the nose. It is not until the gin reaches the tongue do the richness of the floral botanicals come alive. The floral signature lingers on the pallet but is tamed by a delicate dry herbal finish.
Perfect pour: Fill your chilled glass with big ice cubes. Add a double measure of Lumber’s Bartholomew Country Garden Gin. Pour Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic gently on a bar spoon to keep the fizz. Garnish with a few juniper berries and a sprig of rosemary. This also works very well with a good Indian tonic.
