Very gin-esque.

The marketing that I have seen is aimed at using this for Port & Tonic, so the gin thing makes sense.

Very good graphics. I like it. Modern, with the instructions on the bottle. Treat like Sipsmith Summer Cup or Pim's. Chuck in some fruit, mixers and maybe mint for an alternative Summer drink.

I bumped into SCD yesterday. He tried it earlier in the week and reported it as being very tasty.

I tried it last week. Very youthful, fresh style, high on Muscat which really shows in the aromas. Medium-dry style which works wonders with tonic. Incredibly refreshing summer drink, and it looks great too. Well done!

I thought this was only on sale to bars and stuff, but then lo and behold, I got a bottle :)
