Pink Pepper Gin is Audemusâ€™ flagship product â€“ it was born from a desire to create an aromatically bold and complex new-style gin. Steering away from the straight and dry juniper-lead style of gins from the yesteryears, we have created a spirit which will evolve and change depending on how itâ€™s enjoyed.
When you first try a sip of Pink Pepper Gin, itâ€™s the fresher, spicy notes of pink peppercorns, juniper and cardamom that are prominent. When diluted or served chilled over ice, the spirit evolves and the patisserie notes of vanilla, tonka and honey come to the forefront. On the palate the gin is full bodied and intensely aromatic â€“ thus itâ€™s perfect for sipping or for enjoying in cocktails.
Pink Pepper Gin is a unique, hand-crafted assemblage of 9 botanicals, independently infused over a period of time in a pure, neutral grain alcohol.Â The top notes are Pink Peppercorn, Cardamom and Juniper â€“ distilled separately in â€˜Brunhildaâ€™, a bespoke, low-pressure, glass vacuum still.Â The base notes come from a distillation of locally sourced Honey, and Vanilla and Tonka Bean infusions, together with three secret, distilled ingredients.Â The final recipe took months to perfect, and each batch of Pink Pepper Gin takes months to create â€“ itâ€™s a true labour of love, resulting in a smooth and elegant gin.Â Â
There are nine botanicals in all, though only seven are named: juniper, black cardamom, pink peppercorns, cinnamon, honey, vanilla and tonka beans.
