Spirit NOTES

This bottle is limited to 1 per member

A full on and spine-tingling dive into the heart of this distillerys legendary character. Mineral salts, bath bombs, salty pasta water, pure sea salt, ramen broth and dried seaweed all intermingle. Then soy sauce, metal polish, old steel wool and more herbal things like witch hazel and wintergreen. Reduction brings smouldering eucalyptus wood, muddy petrol, machinery oils, potatoes baked in hot wood embers and smoked sea salt. Wet kelp on the shore, lemons pickling in brine and salt baked white fish. The palate is an immediate tidal surge of creosote, natural tar, iodine, TCP soaked bandages and rags from an oily old toolbox. With water theres Germoline, smoked herbal teas, coal scuttles, hot kiln air full of drifting blue peat smoke, camphor, smoked game meats, herbal mouthwash and a bracing hit of black pepper and crystalline smoke.
