Qualified for the Finals of the 2012 Diageo Wolrd Class competition. Paulo "made it thinking about mother-in-laws and their sweet/bitter dualities. The lychee comes as subtle perfume, in the best possible way.'

Excellent. Just a hint of menthol from the Fernet. Used Beefeater and sub'd Thyme liqueur for Lychee. Try with St. Germain or Pear eau-de-vie
