This is the first gin made by Kate and David, which won gold at the Internatio­nal Wine & Spirits Competitio­n in London in August 2020. Kate initially wanted to use 96 botanicals in Albertine but pared it back to 38.

They entered it in the prestigiou­s IWSC competitio­n because it's one of just a few that make tasting notes available post-competitio­n.

The judges described Albertine as having a “complex and perfumed nose”, noting it's “layered with intense lemon, pine and fresh green fruit… fruity, refined and fragrant… complement­ed by a clean balance of juniper and fresh fruit”.
