Colonsay Gin 10cl
Nose – Thick, piny juniper coats the nose; it’s joined by sweet rooty notes and a flicker of burning calamus root and coriander seed fire. That heat is no real surprise here, given the spirit’s ABV of 47%.
Palate – There’s no mistaking this as a juniper forward gin, flanked by an earthy root sweetness. There’s depth too: the coriander seed brings warmth, while the orange peel gives a subtle breath of citrus and the calamus brings a fiery ginger-like rootiness.
Finish – Juniper asserts itself confidently, coating the mouth with a waxy, fir-tree like pine, and the earthier nature of the roots seems louder, imbuing the drinker with that deep sense of calm that only comes from sticking ones hands in cool, dark soil.£6.45

Nose –Woody, vegetable smells under pin fresh grassy citrus notes and botanical sweetness, like a pine forest after the rain.
Palate – Predictably complex, this is a robust and powerful gin with plenty of spice, fruit and herb flavours. It’s very well structured, and difficult to unpick but a citrus fresh start segues into pine and wood notes for a drying finish.
Finish –Wooded and reassuringly heavy.£33.60

Nose – Lots of herbs, and fairly crisp. Citrus, and juniper is quite floral in style but quite pronounced.
Palate – The juniper leads on this one but there is a lot more going on. The botanicals are finely balanced and clean, with that citric element providing a fresh note.
Finish – Short, clear and dry.£15.00
