Trevethan Gin 43% - 70cl
Trevethan gin is a Cornish gin made by friends John Hall & Rob Cuffe in a small alembic still called Doris. The recipe was originally created by Rob's grandfather in the late 1920's and has been painstakingly revived by the modern day distillers through trial and error over 2 years. The gin makes it's presense known with a big hit of juniper and is perfect as a sipping gin or with a dash of soda but equally holds it's own in a healthy G&T. A perfect balance of smooth spirit and well defined flavours.
Trevethan is first and foremost a big hit of juniper both on the nose and the palate but underneath the initial juniper burst you get liquorice from the angelica and spicy cinnamon. Citrus notes from the lemon, orange and elderflower round this off followed by a final spicy kick from the cardamom. The mouth feel is smooth and slightly oily thanks to the gorse and vanilla elements.
Juniper, coriander, angelica, cassia, cardamom, orange peel, lemon peel, elderflower, vanilla and gorse flower.
