From the initial whiff of model glue we quickly moved on to freshly pressed pure red grape juice and a kiwi strawberry smoothie before we got deeper notes of apricot custard lattice and fluffy banana muffins. Tasting neat, a surprisingly smooth yummy start with strawberry jam tarts but very soon the spicy tartness of gooseberry and ginger chutney emerged. When we added water there was plenty of vanilla on the nose; vanilla sponge cake, vanilla ice cream and custard cream biscuits, while on the palate sweet, smooth and refreshing like a lightly spiced ginger beer and lime garnished with fresh mint.
