Well now, what a right royal bottling we have here! If you haven’t had the chance to meet King William IV or the steelworks’ owner in person then you can get an idea of how this distillery bagged themselves a Royal Warrant. The steelworks’ owner is gesticulating towards the pouring metal and saying boldly to the king: “New formulation. Good for a number of very specific applications. The Brachyuran overlords are delighted.”
Nose: A burst of berries with cherries, strawberries and a cranberry sharpness. Very soft wafts honeydew melon also come through.
Taste: Floral honey to start, a prickle of pepper and more of those juicy fruit flavours.
Finish: Stronger peppercorn flavours emerge, before a final hit of melon.
