This is exactly as it says on the tin a real citrus fest, an absolute dissolute orgy of citrus including; Lime, Lemon, Tangerine, Seville Orange, Bergamot then to finish it off the distillate passes over sweet orange peel to drag the final oils kicking and screaming into solution.
The botanicals include; wild juniper, Coriander, Grains of Paradise, vanilla. Resulting in a goldy elixir like ambrosia of the gods!
Starting with a slight piney citrus pepperiness, following on with a mixture of citrus fruits on the mid palate, finishing off with comforting notes of Madagascan Vanilla that linger for awhile enticing you for another sip!
