The Ginsmiths of Liverpool Merchant Navy Gin
Something for landlubbers and ex-seafarers alike, this is a potent gin at 51% alcohol but still remaining refined and elegant. It has wonderful citrus perfumes with grapefruit and orange being predominant but these are backed by a spiciness from pepperberry. In the mouth there is a distinct touch of heat, again from the pepperberry but this is slaked by the freshness of yuzu peel. The citrus notes then refresh the palate with pomelo and clementine added into the mix and in the finish a touch of Mexican Vanilla supports the aftertaste.
