Valencian Orange



ABV: 44.0%

Country: ENGLAND Style: Flavoured

Price per bottle: Availabili­ty: UK, US, EU


Nose: The promised orange is sweet and slightly spicy, like icing made with orange juice on top of festive biscuits. Coriander and juniper, too.

Palate: Sweet orange, like undiluted cordial, with juniper, cinnamon, powdered ginger, and coriander notes.

Finish: Leaves a tingle of warmth along with bitterswee­t notes of orange peel and piney hints.

Comments: A pleasantly flavoured gin that presents its orange character nicely. It would lengthen well with tonic or soda water.



Nose: Sunny, zesty aromas of orange, with a touch of candied peel and orange blossom.

Palate: A good, solid gin flavour from the outset with juniper, coriander and angelica. These classic flavours then make way for the brighter citrus notes of lemon and orange alongside lighter, floral clementine and zesty grapefruit.

Finish: A clean, smooth finish of candied orange and an oiliness that lingers.

Comments: A sincere orange gin; maybe not the most exciting, but it does the job handsomely.
