Tasting Notes for That Boutique-y Gin Company - Moonshot Gin
Aroma: Through bright juniper come waves of citrus, soft and well developed – orange blossom, lemon balm and pinch of pink grapefruit. Green pine notes and hints of fennel rise, along with a little perfumed rose water.
Taste: In a delicious cream soda texture there’s sweet sherbet lemon, orange oil and bergamot. Perfumed vanilla and jasmine linger beneath, with tart liquorice root and a suggestion of star anise. Turkish Delight and icing sugar are also present.
Finish: A sweetly floral finish also offers waxy mixed peels, warming pine needle and an intensifying earthy spiciness.
Perfect Serve: Fresh Lemonade.
Do you like yuzu? Boutique-Y do too! In fact, they are such big fans of this curious citrus fruit that they decided to produce a gin in honour of its fabulous aromatic profile! This stuff is excellent in a G&T, and more than suitable for a Negroni as well.
Limited to 7250 bottles.
