Perfume Trees Gin

Price: HK$728 (US$93) 

Perfume Trees Gin grabbed a Master medal in the Contemporary flight for its “fruity, berry, jammy” nose, leading to a “fresh and lively palate” with a “persistent and powerful finish”.

“This had a fruity grape aspect to it, which could unbalance the product, but actually it’s been done sympathetically,” said one member of the panel. “There’s juniper, a thyme leafiness – quite a complicated thing to do – and nicely balanced.”

The gin takes its inspiration from Hong Kong and is made with botanicals such as sandalwood and white champaca flowers.
