Liverpool Distillery Tasting Notes

Posted: June 12, 2015 in English Gin, Gin, White Spirits

Liverpool Organic Gin 42%

Tasted: Oct 2014

Nose: Quite perfumed with camomile, rose petals, capsicum, aniseed and juniper. However it’s marred by an odd metallic note which reminds me of iron fillings!

Palate: Subtle and vague. Again slightly metallic with hints of juniper, camomile and pepper.

Finish: Short and hot. Very dry with a perfumed rose petal after-taste.

Conclusion: Not exactly earth shattering!

Liverpool Organic Gin 42%

Re-Tasted: Dec 2014

Quite fresh on the nose but gently oiled and creamy with lemon, dusty coriander, angelica and subtle juniper notes. Lightly sweetened with a light earthiness.

The palate is as fresh as the nose suggests, but it opens with some pleasant sugar coated lemon. Hints of cassia bark, coriander and cardamom follow. Seriously spicy on the middle and finish. Lovely complexity with an angelica fade.

Re-Tasted: Dec 2015

Crisp and citric aromas with herbal juniper, cardamom, coriander and a touch of lemon/ orange rind. Lovely ‘glacial’ freshness.

The palate is fuller than the nose suggests and lightly oiled. Hints of cereal, herbal juniper, cardamom, coriander and gentle woody spices. Long and intensely citric with a lovely juniper and spice finish.

Liverpool Organic Gin – Rose 42%

Tasted: Dec 2015

Fresh and gently citric aromas but oilier than their standard gin. Lightly soapy with hints of sweet rose petals, juniper, dusty coriander and woody spices.

The palate is earthy and slightly musty with a combination of sweet rose and damp rose petals.. Quite junipery and citric on the middle with some subtle woody spice. Long and a little overly perfumed with a citrus bite in the finish.

Liverpool Organic Gin – Valencian Orange 42%

Tasted: Dec 2015

Very subtle aromas of sweet orange rind, juniper and citrus. Like the rose it’s slightly soapy with coriander, cardamom and a light earthiness.

The palate is soft and again slightly soapy with the orange being so subtle that it’s ridiculously hard to spot! Hints of juniper, lemon and herbal/ bitter spice appear. Long with the spices softening. Personally I prefer their standard gin!
