Gin of the month - Silent Pool

In October, highlight on Silent Pool as the #Ginofthemonth.

Silent Pool is a spring-fed lake at the foot of the North Downs in Surrey and here you can find the distillery where this signature gin is created.

The sweet floral aromas conspire to shout over the rest of the pack, though play somewhat of a trick on the tongue as to taste; the gin is far more spicy and savory than the nose would attest. The elderflower sweetness is at the fore, but this is quickly displaced by citrus, followed by the spice of the cubeb and grains of paradise, though coriander does hold the citrus in place a little longer.
