Nose: the first nose is fresh, very intense, herbaceous, followed by citrus notes and a hint of blackcurrant and licorice.

Palate: supple, it reveals a beautiful complexity. Floral notes (heather) and sweet spices accompany the juniper in a skillfully orchestrated symphony.

Finish: warm, comforting, with a touch of liquorice and honey.


The Knifemaker is the first gin from the Straw Bale distillery. It is a very fresh, slightly zesty and spicy gin. Created by Gilles VICTORS, founder of Straw Bale Distillery, this "London dry Gin" is distilled by batch of 300 liters in a copper still dedicated to him alone.

"Back in France, I decided to compose my to compose my own recipe. A distillate of wheat and rye, juniper berries, and a multitude of other botanicals. The challenge seemed motivating to me! It took me almost a year to find the right balance, the right choice of botanicals".
