Strong notes of eucalyptus and menthol on the nose. Lemon mint, pineapple sage and a nutty hint of wattle seed. Nearly everything about Applewood Gin seems distinctively Australian— it bears a striking resemblance to the nose of Botanic Australis Gin.
The palate is intense with eucalyptus notes throughout; however, while that is the dominant botanicals, there’s a really nice unfolding of the supporting botanicals—
Juniper and camphor add a bright lemony citrus facet. Mid-palate the eucalyptus is at its strongest with a flash of French Lavender. Just past mid-palate the camphor glow begins to recede. Hints of almond, finger lime, and lavender. There’s a hint of juniper on the finish that barely pokes its head through above the eucalyptus.
