Here's my Christmas wish for those who want to shower me with prezzies....Built from rice and distilled with carefully selected Asian botanicals, I'm loving the Paper Lantern Gin. The description reads to my tune. Sichuan peppercorns contribute aromatic hints of pine and clove along with more herbal overtones of plum and lavender. Makhwaen and lemongrass add a distinctive citrus high note to balance out the spicy base coming from the ginger and galangal. A true marriage of flavours with subtle sweetness, depth and warmth. Has my name written all over it
