A fizzy, citric, sherbet aroma like that of an old-fashioned cloudy lemonade next to wine gums, some fresh coconut and vanilla, as well as a hint of ginger and white pepper made this a pleasantly intricate experience. There was a spicy heat on the palate but that soon faded and gave way to a tray of summery Pimm’s jelly garnished with plenty of finely shredded mint. Diluted; a floral experience, as we were presented with a gorgeous bunch of fresh flowers delivered to our doorstep accompanied by a sweet love letter. It was Buck’s Fizz and making up your mind time.
