Although some of the elements are rather exotic, this is a gin drinker's gin with plenty of traditional character and the recognizable core of juniper. Hibiscus macerated after distillation lends a slight pinkish/gold hue (Valentine’s Day anyone?) and add some delicious floral notes. As seems to be the case at Eden Mill, the distillate is rich and creamy with very little presence of alcohol. One could apply this successfully to classic gin cocktails, but the combination of ripe fruit and floral complexity and great drinkability makes this a balanced drink on it’s own with perhaps a floral garnish.

Sweet, mild, clean fragrance of lemon, juniper and licorice. This is a complex gin; cinnamon spice, astringent pine needles, a touch of lime zest and, finally, a big licorice finish comes singing through. Slightly oily feel. Great for a gimlet or martini with a lemon twist.

Clear. Delicate aromas of cucumber, rose, honeyed citrus and floral juniper with a satiny dry-yet-fruity medium-full body with a long, elegant and smooth finish. A sensationally flavorful and seamless gin.

Delicate, floral, grassy aromas and flavors of lemon verbena and basil, lemon pudding cake, fruit loops, and pickled melon with a silky, crisp, petillant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length candied violets, earl grey tea with cream, and minerals finish.

The Original Gin’s bouquet shows a beautiful combination of bright citrus, earthy coriander, and a healthy dose of refreshing juniper matched with the spirit’s calling card: the sea buckthorn berry. These tart little fruits give an invigorating character to the gin, but compliment the traditional botanicals rather than hijacking the flavor profile making this a great tool in all sorts of traditional applications — particularly well-suited for a gin and tonic. The distillate has a rich mouthfeel and no real impression of alcoholic burn or spice.
