Tasting Notes for That Boutique-y Gin Company - Finger Lime Gin
Aroma: Zesty and vibrant, juniper and lime blend well among angelica, and an earthy quality.
Taste: Through anise and coriander spice there's creamy lime bars, a touch of lemon zest and the subtlest menthol note.
Finish: Syrupy and slightly warming, with a floral quality.
Australia has given us many great things, including AC/DC, Hugh Jackman and big things (there are over 150 sculptures of things that are big all over Australia, including a big pelican, a big rum bottle and a big bench). However, we're so fond of one Australian export that we made a gin dedicated to it - finger limes! These odd fruits have a texture that's a bit like caviar, and they taste absolutely amazing. They were destined for gin!
