‘GUIDING STAR’ SALCOMBE VOYAGER SERIES GIN

£69.99
'Guiding Star’ is an exceptional cask finished sloe and damson gin where the classic autumnal stone fruit flavours have been accentuated with rose petals, bitter almonds and sweet orange peel. In the glass the gin is deep crimson in colour with a slight brick red tinge from the influence of the tawny port cask in which it was aged. On the palate it is rich and balanced with luscious notes of cherry, blackberries, tart redcurrants and spiced marzipan. The finish is tart with underlying sweetness from the lees of the Niepoort Colheita 1997 tawny port previously aged in the cask. Super special Gin!
