Judges Tasting Notes One might not imagine samphire as the most obvious lead botanical in a Gin but by gum, they’ve pulled it off! Firstly this is a great Gin in its own right, with depth, complex flavour profile and a wonderfully resonant long finish. The samphire just adds a very delicate layer of saline lift on the nose and palate, a faintly salty tang. A really cleverly conceived and crafted Gin, Bravo!
This brand new artisan gin from Mullion in Cornwall is made using Cornish rock samphire and local spring water. Produced by husband and wife team William and Rubina, Curio gin is quadruple distilled with 15 other fragrant botanicals, including Kombu seaweed sourced by The Cornish Seaweed Company, to create a delicious gin. Serve: Fever Tree Mediterranean tonic with basil garnish.
