Van Wees THREE Corners Gin
The nose sings with the two primary ingredients. Piney, herbaceous juniper complemented by stark, bitter lemon zest, which slowly contradicts itself with aroma of bitter orange as it opens up in the air. A deep, warm nose that despite being only two notes, it stands out to the drinker and is quite recognizable alongside other gins.
The palate is clean and despite what you get on the nose, it’s restrained and somewhat understated. At first, crisp pine accentuated juniper berries, with citrus, this time chiefly lemon, zest lifting the finish. Warmth emerges from the finish with hints of cubeb and grains of paradise like notes characterizing a pleasant lift. Medium-long, it starts with a dull throbbing warmth, receding gently as an ebbing wave, quietly petering out with a whisper of juniper.
