Tasting Notes
by Dushan Zaric

NOSE
Juniper, coriander and angelica root up front with developing layers of citrus, jasmine and hints of vanilla in the back. Very pleasant on the nose, bright and aromatic.

MID PALATE
Prominent mid palate presence, with juniper oils on the center tongue and full aroma on top palate. Citrus oils excite the side palate beautifully. Under tongue stays dry yet animated. Excellent mid palate structure to serve as base for mixing.

DRYNESS
Dryness coming from jasmine.

"At 90 proof Fords Gin holds in a lot of flavor. When tasting, we recommend a splash of water to release the flavours. You'll notice the high oil content just by looking in the glass. The coriander, citrus and florals really come to life. It's also a good way to see how Fords gin will show in a cocktail."

– Simon Ford, The 86 Co.

FRONT OF PALATE
Light sweetness on tip of the tongue. Gentle introduction of the botanicals to follow. Notes of orris and angelica roots.

COMPLEXITY
High.

BODY OR MOUTH FEEL
Full body with rather fresh mouth feel and high oil content.

FINISH
Long, lingering finish of grapefruit rind and juniper with a balance of the floral notes.
