True North Adventurer and Voyager memberships have access to the Flavour Trail, our online platform for the senses; but what is the Flavour Trail and how can it improve your enjoyment of spirits?
Spirits featured in our curated monthly Spirits Kits have their own distinct flavours and aromas. Each persons ability to identify these flavours is different from one person to the next; this is where the Flavour Trail plays an important part in presenting different flavour groups and how they can be experienced on the palate.
Flavour Trail maps have a series of 12 primary flavour groups. For Gin spirit, these groups are: Floral, Sweetness, Nutty, Heat, Spicy, Zesty, Piney, Herbal, Cucurbit, Fruity, Berries and Earthy.
Each map reveals flavour group intensities by using a star-shaped pattern; the pointier the pattern and furthest from the map’s centre illustrates a greater sensation felt on the nose and palate. If one of the points is closer to the centre of the map; this means the flavour is not experienced as intensely.
Clicking the individual points around the map will yield new and exciting information about each flavour groups for the particular spirit you are tasting. Use these as a guide to help navigate what flavours you nose and taste in spirits.
Your enjoyment of each flavour group can be recorded with the Flavour Trail so why not rate each flavour and aroma you experience. By doing so, you will be contributing to an archive of flavour preferences.
True North offers three unique memberships: Traveller, Adventurer and Voyager.
As a Adventurer, you can choose to receive one or both of our beautifully curated Spirits Kits each month. You also have access to the Flavour Trail, where you can learn about the flavours and aromas of each spirit you enjoy. Adventurer memberships also give premium access to special Distillery products and members-only preferential pricing on full bottle purchases.
True North also offers the availability to purchase our Spirits Kits as a one-off gift-to-self, or as a gift for another. Check out our Voyager Membership by clicking here.
