Alfred The Great Gin
London dry gin with an initial thump of piney juniper, enlightening coriander and citrus end notes. The Wessex twist bought to this gin is the chervil, with its faintly aniseed flavour, it was believed in Anglo-Saxon times to “strengthen the stomach” when mixed with honey and a freshly ground poppy.
A soft, dry earthiness with a little orange fruitiness. A thick and viscous texture that coats the mouth. There are some sweet vanilla notes that are well balanced by a dusky florality. A touch of spice follows, before a long, honeyed finish.
