Many of us here at MoM Towers have wanted to visit California, but for one reason or another, we've not hopped on a plane just yet (I think it's mostly for fear of grizzly bears and not being able to get a proper cup of tea).
However, the wonderful folks at St. George Spirits have provided us the next best thing, the Terroir Gin! Now in a 70cl bottle, its botanical selection of Douglas Fir, Coastal sage and Californian bay laurel gives it a magical nose that makes you really feel like you're stood in a Californian forest (with no chance of a grizzly sneaking up on you as an added bonus!).
Nose: You're out in nature. In a forest to be precise, surrounded by Douglas firs and woodsy herbal aromas.
Palate: Fresh, with more fir, pine and bay laurel alongside the coastal sage. Well-structured and moreish.
Finish: Evocative and very long with citrus and lingering herbaceous notes.
Overall: A huge favourite of ours, it's just so evocative. Superb stuff.
