The cucamelon is a wonderful fruit native to Mexico and Central America that looks like a tiny watermelon but tastes similar to a lime-dipped cucumber. Frankly they seem ridiculous, but cucamelons really do exist - and we made a gin with them!

Tasting notes:

Nose: Through orange oil and savoury juniper there’s candied peel, anise, and a suggestion of pocket-peppermints. There’s a kick of cumin in the backdrop.

Taste: Creamy vanilla, a little bitterness and subtly tart citrus lead, with a hint of angelica and jasmine. Clove and warm juniper simmer throughout.

Finish: The juniper heat persists as the anise becomes syrupy and there’s a touch of marzipan.
