Spice Trade Gin is quite literally a spice bazaar in a bottle. It is vibrant, aromatic and, if ‘colourful’ was a sense, then it would be that too. Firstly, it is unmistakably gin. There is a huge weight of juniper which we needed because the power of the botanicals needed a solid canvas. Then you get powerful aromas of finger lime, chilli, cardamom and turmeric. The palate is huge. The weight is built from macadamia and cashews along with sarsaparilla and cassia which hold the spices together. The warming spices of teppal, long pepper, fresh red chilli and black cardamom blend with lemon and anise myrtle to add to the power and depth of the gin. This gin is a festival and a celebration. It’s loud and fun and flavoursome and fresh.
