Larrikin LOLA Gin

– Ballarat, vic

Price $80.00, 700ml, 46% ABV

Nose: Lifted juniper, floral, citrus oils, pepper, cinnamon, spice. Pretty botanical fusion on a solid blank spirit canvas. Good use of star anise and fennel without being over bearing.

Palate: Quite warming, with interesting complexity. Refreshing and mouth filling, made in the London Dry Gin style with a good Australian influence; lemon myrtle, lime, mint and rosemary.
