Pigskin Pink Gin, Silvio Carta
Pigskin Pink Gin, Silvio Carta
The juniper note is decidedly detached from the nose, seduced by hints of aromatic herbs that are quickly mixed with nuances of cyclamen and cardamom. The taste is rich, warm and flows with agility, denoting a pleasant mentholated freshness typical of helichrysum. This fades slowly into a pleasing citrus finish.
