Wessex Alfred the Great Gin 5cl
It's the precise blend of core botanicals which ensure this Wessex Distillery's Alfred the Great gin can be enjoyed without any fuss
A London dry gin, which definitely packs a juniper 'thump' right from the start. However, this soon blends delightfully into enlightening coriander, and citrus end notes.
The Wessex twist to this gin comes from the chervil which makes it quite unique and gives a faintly anissed flavour to the gin.
In Anglo-saxon times, chervil was believed to aid the constitution and strengthen the stomach. To which we say, if it's fortifying you - then have a small second!
Delicious when served with a neutral tonic, so as not to overpower the mild chervil flavour. Add lots of ice, and garnish with grapefruit to enhance the citrus end notes in the gin.
