Isle of Harris...Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic...Grapefruit...Ice Ball.
The Macedonian juniper berries speak first, the rising breath of pine needles remisicant of an early autumn walk in Aline Forest. Then comes a gentle rush of fresh citrus before scents of summer machair bring a more floral breeze. There are moments of crushed grass-green herbs while the Sugar Kelp swims through it all, bringing a dry, maritime air.There's a quiet softness to begin, and a luxurious, weighty mouthfeel. The spirit is clean and refreshing, a green herbal thread weaving with a delicious sweetness. Then the peppery warmth of a freshly lit fire bursts forth, all gentle sparks and spices. There is an elusive quality to the spirit, the Sugar Kelp hinting at salt-spray but never dominating other elements.As the juniper and citrus fall away, sweet candy and pepper remain among a fading memory of the sea. A dry, flinty taste endures, like Atlanic waves drying upon rocky shores.
Made with 9 carefully chosen botanicals:
Local hand-harvested Sugar Kelp.
Macedonian Juniper Berries
English Coriander Seed
Cubebs / Javan Pepper
Bitter Orange Peel
