Refreshingly addictive, this gin offers wonderfully unique flavors of fresh juniper berries, coriander, fennel, and bright citrus orange. As the spirit rests, these flavors blend, soften, and come together to create a truly artisanal gin. To best enhance the fresh flavors of this gin, we recommend bright citrus fruits of lemons, limes, grapefruit, and apples, as well as the delicate herbs of thyme, rosemary, and fresh lavender
