Distiller: Falcon Spirits
Bottler: Falcon Spirits
Brand: Falcon Spirits
ABV: 45% ABV
Nose: Intensely aromatic – juniper, citrus and cucumber are unsurprisingly a bold presence at first. Cream, a bit of honey, a faint nuttiness and lots of zest are present as well. Light, crisp, refreshing on the nose. I was a bit afraid this would smell more like a Lush franchise than a gin, but those fears were misplaced.
Taste: Rich on the palate with a good deal of cucumber, lemon, honey and crisp juniper. Bright, effervescent, fun and enigmatic.
Finish: Long finish, rich with pepper, rising bread, cucumber, honey and powerful botanicals and citrus. Lovely, bold, with fascinating complexity.
Overall: This is quite interesting – unlike anything I’ve had, the proofing with cucumber water is really fascinating, and it brings so much character to the forefront of what’s going on. I love it, and I wonder if I’ll have a gin like it again.
Thanks for reading!
