This artisan farmhouse gin is made with 20 botanicals. The nose is subtle fresh rose petals, then spice and a hint of juniper. The initial palate is floral with bitter, fresh notes of dandelion and peppery cloves. The texture is silky, exuding a superb botanical mouth-feel finished by intense juniper tones and peppermint cool. 70cl.
Alcohol: 42% by vol. Cold distilled under vacuum.
Nose: Green juniper, followed by a burst of herbal spice notes, including cardamom and sage. Then some coriander and finally, fennel.
Taste: Plenty of coriander up front, along with some other citrus. This then moves onto some sweet spices, such as fennel and star anise, and finishes up with the dry juniper. After the citrus-heavy start, this is a herbal and piney gin with forest-like qualities.
Overall: I’m quite fond of Dà Mhìle and its bold flavours and that is aside from the fact that the whole gin is distilled in Wales and it is Organic (to the EU standard, which is more stringent than the USA standard). Before Dà Mhìle the only UK 100% organic gin was Juniper Green Gin which is nice enough but, unlike Dà Mhìle, lacks a certain wow factor.
91/100 “Superb craft gin.”
