Cassia is a relative of the true cinnamon of Sri Lanka, and while cassia bark emits a similarly fiery and woody scent, it’s a little sweeter than cinnamon. As a botanical it lends a complex base note and a certain feeling of familiarity to gins. Its hot and spicy smell conjures up images of exotic markets and far-flung destinations, but it has an earthy tone and a sweet finish, reminiscent of liquorice. Typically, the flavour is more noticeable towards the finish when tasting gin, as opposed to on the aroma. Great garnish for all of the gins with a spiced profile!
