It's been described as making "an ideal G&T for people who just don’t like gin."
The essence of rhubarb adds a tart crisp edge to the gin base whilst the ginger extract warms the palate. “We’d been looking around the world at different botanicals and then we thought – why not try to balance things with something from closer to home,” explained its creator. “Most people seem to think that rhubarb and ginger pair well together, so it seemed like a lovely way to go.”

Other reviews... ... Lovely is one word for it. The nose is all fizzy cola bottles, whilst the mouth is those click clack against your teeth rhubarb and custard sweets of yesteryear. Note that in both circumstances, despite the gulf between flavour differences, the general impression is one of sugar. It’s just so candied that it attacks the gin within, and while little green notes of fresh rhubarb rise to bring some element of sensibility to proceedings, the overall effect is as far removed from gin as… well, flavoured vodka. - ginfoundry.com
