Gin and Genever

Atian Rose Gin
94 points
Brilliant light pink color. Attractive, floral aromas of Turkish rose custard dessert, lemon and lime curd pastries, hint of bergamot, and melon with an oily, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, elegant, long juniper blossoms and jam, Moroccan orange spice cake, hint of bitter herbs and pink pepper, and wet minerals finish. A soft, oily, superbly balanced floral-accented gin with great drinkability, neat, on ice, or in shaken or long cocktails.
