The use of local ingredients adds a strong sense of place to every drop of Rock Rose gin. Each batch of the bright and zesty Old Tom Pink Grapefruit features the fresh peel of 60 organic grapefruits, deliciously complemented by other citrus ingredients like lemon verbena and sweetened with muscovado.
GIN SOCIETY TASTING NOTES
Nose: Intensely citrusy with a delicate floral note thanks to the Rhodiola rosea. There’s pink grapefruit at the front and subtle juniper coming through.
Taste: Immediately sweet, but overall it is very balanced and will still suit people who like a dry gin. There’s a strong presence of grapefruit peel that leads to earthy juniper, distinct floral hints and a warming, peppery spice. The team vapour-infuse both Bulgarian juniper for its lemon-sherbet notes, and Italian juniper for added warmth and depth.
Finish: Plenty of piney juniper warmth with a touch of vanilla sweetness thanks to the use of muscovado sugar. The zesty finish really ramps up the refreshment.
