Tesco Finest ‘The Melodist’ London Dry Gin, 40% abv, £20.00 IWC Silver Medal 2020 – Twelve botanicals are carefully layered to create the flavour profile of this gin and, like an orchestra, each one has a key part to play in the composition. >From woody base notes of coriander seed, cinnamon bark and liquorice root, to the high notes of zesty yuzu, grapefruit and lemongrass, the result is bold, but brilliantly balanced. Serve this with your favourite tonic and make it special with a garnish of rosemary and pink grapefruit.
