Warner's Lemon Balm Gin: A Refreshing Citrus Journey

Warner's Lemon Balm Gin isn't your average gin. This innovative spirit takes inspiration from the verdant English countryside, using real lemon balm to create a taste experience unlike any other. Perfect for gin enthusiasts seeking a vibrant, citrus-forward spirit, Warner's Lemon Balm offers a refreshing twist on the classic London Dry Gin.

Aromatic Adventure

The moment you pour Warner's Lemon Balm into a chilled glass, a wave of invigorating citrus aromas fills the air. Fresh lemon balm takes centre stage, its essence intertwined with hints of zesty grapefruit peel. A touch of peppery spice adds an intriguing complexity, while subtle underlying notes of juniper, the cornerstone of gin, peek through, hinting at the spirit's depth.

A Burst of Citrus Delight

The first sip of Warner's Lemon Balm is an explosion of citrusy delight. Vibrant lemon balm takes centre stage, coating the palate with its refreshingly herbal flavour. Zesty grapefruit and a touch of orange peel add depth and complexity, creating a lively citrus orchestra. The underlying juniper notes provide a familiar, grounding base, ensuring this gin remains unmistakably a gin. As the flavours develop, a touch of honeyed sweetness emerges, courtesy of the lemon thyme botanical. This sweetness is balanced by a gentle tingling sensation on the tongue, a delightful surprise brought about by the lemon thyme.

A Lingering Finish

The finish of Warner's Lemon Balm Gin is smooth and lasting, leaving a pleasant citrus aftertaste. Hints of pink peppercorn add a touch of warmth, while the citrus notes linger alongside a subtle touch of soft lavender. This creates a truly unique and memorable conclusion to the tasting experience.
