Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru Murcian Lemon…sale price $32

Bombay Sapphire’s special edition continues with Premier Cru Murcian Lemon, which is infused with Fino lemons from Murcia, Spain alongside additional mandarin and navel oranges to brighten up the citrus quality of the spirit. The impact of the additional citrus here is notable and impactful. The nose is instantly lemony without coming across as candylike in the slightest, taking the shape of lime leaf at times, with distinct mandarin aromas. While lightly earthy the way any good gin should be, juniper takes a clear back seat while the fruit does more of the heavy lifting.

Tanqueray Rangpur Lime…sale price $26

A Rangpur Lime isn’t really a lime. It’s known as a Canton lemon in some parts of the world— but it’s not a lemon either. It’s a hybrid of a mandarin orange and a citron.  Lime dominates the fore— and although the rangpur is not a lime, the nose is decidedly lime-like. Juniper and a hint of traditional Tanqueray licorice and spice lie beneath. 

Malfy Limone…sale price:$30

The Malfy gin con Limone is a fresh and very easy drink – especially for non-gin drinkers to experiment with. For those who love the freshness associated with citrus and lemons, this is a must-have.

Nikka Coffey Gin…sale price: $37

Nikka Coffey Gin is a rich gin with a supple texture. Citrus notes dominate, with juniper present in the background. The first sip seems slightly sweet, and a spicy, herbal flavor is prominent on the finish. And there are also hints of fresh flowers, apples, and pears. Overall, this is a luxurious Japanese gin.
