September ’18 – Affinity Gin

Featuring 11 botanicals, Affinity comes in at 44%, somewhat above a standard 40%.

It’s great to see juniper here on the nose, underpinned with orange citrus and warm clove spice notes.

On the palate, we found the vanilla to begin, quickly followed by juniper mixed through with spice, not peppery, but rather savoury clove and cinnamon. There’s something Christmasy about this gin for us. The mix of clove and juniper is nostalgic and definitely looking forward to enjoying this with Christmas pudding later in the year!

While Ally and Nick prefer sipping this gin above all else, if you’re looking to mix it, we have a few suggestions on the garnish front. Personally we think a cinnamon stick to complement that vanilla and clove will go down a treat. Don’t go overboard on the tonic, this gin is easily drowned out, stick to a nice light tonic or better yet why not try this one with soda water instead of tonic.
