As with most non-alc spirits (excepting Gordon’s) Banks isn’t aiming to directly mimic a gin flavour profile. Its a unique blend of native botanicals distilled naturally in water. The Banks team have headed towards a warmer palette, with strong notes of Cassia giving you a very cinnamon forward flavour and Wattle Seed a slightly bitter, earthy taste. There’s Pepperberry for heat and lemon myrtle and lime for a balancing blend of citrus.
On first try I found the cinnamon profile TOO strong, and I quite love cinnamon. But I’ve found the stronger citrus vibes of a Fentiman’s Pink Grapefruit Tonic are the perfect compliment for the Banks Botanicals blend. That tartness is the perfect balance.
A beautifully unique, refreshing and adult drinking experience that I highly recommend and enjoy!
