The Cambridge Distillery love a good bit of boundary-pushing, and they've done it again with their Truffle Gin, made using white truffle from Alba! Rich and subtly savoury, this is fascinating stuff indeed.
Innovatively distilled to preserve the full flavour of the truffle, Truffle Gin achieves a flavour profile more usually associated with mature spirits, and is a complex and well-balanced spirit of unparallelled depth and complexity.
Nose: Thyme, a hint of dried citrus peels, menthol and petrichor.
Palate: Oily juniper, black pepper and continued earthy notes. Almost savoury at points!
Finish: Herbaceous notes of basil leaf and lemongrass last.
