Spirit NOTES

Familiar maritime aromas of a sea breeze over a ship's decking merged with salted caramel, liquorice ice cream and crème fraîche. Salty flavours continued on to the palate with fresh oysters on a Japanese seaweed salad, while star anise and scorched scones joined angelica root, juniper berries and cumin seeds in hazelnut oil. Adding water heightened the seaside elements as we now stood beside a beach bonfire piled high with burning gorse, eating pickled anchovies topped with lemon zest. The taste now exemplified smoked mackerel and dry salt on an old pier before scorched biscuits blended with tree bark and tea leaves in an old sailor's tobacco tin.
