Review #1671 | Gin Review #57

Distiller: Joseph A Magnus

Bottler: Joseph A Magnus

Brand: Vigilant District


ABV: 42% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Fresh, ripe, juicy and effervescent. Lots of great citrus, honey, apples, pears, orange and more. Light vanilla character, sweet honey, really enticing.

Taste: Fresh, crisp and complex on the palate. Juniper takes a back seat to a fruit hat like quantity of notes – cucumber, strawberry, lemon, lime, orange. Bright and sweet.

Finish: Finish is lighter here, still very fruity, but with a hint more juniper. Long, fairly rich. Loaded with that lovely apple note playing off white pepper and juniper.

Overall: This is really wild, its real fruity and light with plenty of citrus to keep things interesting. This makes a delightful gin fizz, and played really well in a dirty martini as well, which surprised me (in a good way).

Thanks for reading!
