Wine Enthusiast 92 points - The producer describes this gin made from raw honey as ’dancing the line between an Old Tom and a London Dry style.’ We’d say it edges closer to Old-Tom gins, thanks to its surprising sweetness and understated juniper. Look for notes of candied lemon peel, vanilla, white pepper, and a whisper of spicy cinnamon. A touch viscous, it’s unusually mouth coating for a gin. (Nov 2013)
Created from pure grain spirits, juniper berries and raw honey, Caledonia Spirits "Barr Hill" Gin is a distinctive spirit with a refined, yet complex flavor profile. The addition of raw honey during the second distillation imparts elegant floral notes and a subtle sweetness, perfectly complementing the crisp flavor of fresh juniper. A light herbal note appears on the soft, earthy finish.
