Never let anybody tell you that you can't learn things from gin, because I certainly have today: that little "&" symbol that I find so hard to draw properly is called an "ampersand". I don't know why I never knew this before, but I'm certainly glad I do now.
Moving on, this gin certainly has a charm to it and I can say it certainly worked on me, I actually had another gin lined up to try before this caught my eye. The frosted glass bottle makes this gin a delight to look at - the texture is also entirely elegant and makes holding it just as pleasant.
But of course, the last - and most important - thing I've yet to experience is the gin itself. It's a silky pink colour and hits the nose quite fruitily, with almost no spicy notes at all. This belies the actual gin, which I poured into a glass and set about tasting. Once again, there's a fruity sense of strawberry and raspberry; but that alone would be too overpowering. Luckily, this exquisite gin delicately balances that light and fruity sense out with a hit of black pepper and orange oil, creating a delectable combination that excites the senses and leaves me wanting ever more. Luckily, I had an entire bottle, so it wasn't as though I couldn't indulge myself!
In short, although many strawberry gins tend to be overpoweringly fruity, this one manages to strike a delicate balance between the sweetness of today's gins, and the spice of yesterday's, and as such is entirely unlikely to disappoint anyone.
