Stanley's Strawberry Cream Gin: A Delightful Sip of Summer in a Bottle

Looking for a gin that captures the essence of a quintessential British summer treat? Look no further than Stanley's Strawberry Cream Gin! This vibrant spirit, instantly recognisable by its charming label featuring a dapper bulldog, offers a delightful exploration of sweet strawberries and rich cream, all woven into the smooth base of a classic London Dry Gin.

On the Nose:

The first impression upon pouring Stanley's Strawberry Cream Gin is an explosion of fresh, ripe strawberries. The aroma is clean and inviting, reminiscent of a punnet of summer berries just picked from the garden. Underlying the sweet strawberry notes is a subtle hint of creamy vanilla, adding a touch of complexity and elegance. The juniper backbone, a hallmark of any good gin, is present but gentle, ensuring the fruit and cream take centre stage.

On the Palate:

The initial sip delivers a burst of juicy strawberry flavour, perfectly balanced by a pleasant sweetness that isn't cloying. The cream element comes through beautifully on the mid-palate, adding a smooth, luxurious texture that complements the fruit without overpowering it. The juniper asserts itself slightly more on the taste, providing a subtle peppery warmth and a touch of dryness that keeps the gin from being overly sweet. The balance between the sweet fruit, creamy richness, and juniper dryness is truly masterful, creating a complex and satisfying flavour profile.

The Finish:

The finish of Stanley's Strawberry Cream Gin is delightfully long-lasting. The sweetness of the strawberries fades gradually, leaving behind a lingering hint of cream and a touch of juniper spice. It's a clean and refreshing finish that invites another sip.
