Appearance: Rose gold with highlights of worn copper.

Nose: Opens with mature aromas both sweet (canelé, panna cotta, crème de noyaux) and savory (walnut oil, leather). This is followed quickly by a vast array of fruit derived both from the spirit (smoked apricot, grapefruit peel) as well as the cask treatment (sloe gin, damson jam). The aroma is high toned, pungently floral and herbaceous, with subtle, balancing pops of minerality.

Palate: Darker (cocoa, molasses, burnt marshmallow) and spicier (cola, nutmeg, Tellicherry peppercorn) than the nose, an effect well-complemented by the cask treatment and rendered more complex by the savory and herbaceous themes running throughout.

Finish: A sweet and elegant signature of rose jelly, chestnut honey, and Pineau des Charantes that also features hazelnut, eucalyptus, and Corsican mint.

With a few drops of spring water

An unexpected avalanche of orange and tropical notes of watermelon, lychee and vanilla on the nose.

Cocktail Suggestions: New York Sour


2 oz Dovetail

.75 oz Simple Syrup

.75 oz Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Egg White

.5 oz Red Wine (a fruity one; Nic used California Cabernet)

Add Dovetail, fresh lemon juice and simple syrup into the small side of a Boston Shaker set. Then add egg white and 2 1.5 inch ice cubes to the large side of a Boston Shaker set. Flip the small side of the shaker into the large side and press hard on the top to ensure a seal. Shake vigorously until the ice is melted- you will be able to tell from the sound.

Open with the large shaker on the bottom, then strain with a Hawthorne strainer into Old Fashioned glass filled with ice. It should be frothy. Pour red wine into jigger, and quickly pour into the middle of the drink. Once the drink settles for minute, the red wine should float below the egg white froth and above the base of the drink.
