And what is inside? With this gin, if you like a smooth gin with berry flavours, and the zing of citrus, you certainly won't be disappointed.
Using the traditional notes of gin, they steep their unique recipe of botanicals in pure grain spirit until the natural oils and aromas are released. This ensures the flavours merge perfectly with the more traditional notes of gin.

This certainly is a "gin like no other", and shows why it has won numerous awards and is availale now in over 30 countries around the world.
