Pink Pepper Gin is Audemus Spirits flagship product. 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 yesteryears, they have created a spirit which will evolve and change depending on how it is enjoyed.
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. The top notes are Pink Peppercorn, Cardamom and Juniper distilled separately in "Brunhilda", a bespoke, low-pressure, glass vacuum still. The base notes come from a distillation of locally sourced Honey, and Vanilla and Tonka Bean infusions, together with three secret, distilled ingredients. The final recipe took months to perfect, and each batch of Pink Pepper Gin takes months to create. It is a true labour of love, resulting in a smooth and elegant gin.
There are nine botanicals in all, though only seven are named: juniper, black cardamom, pink peppercorns, cinnamon, honey, vanilla and tonka beans.
Juniper to the fore, supported by floral notes and spicy, warm cardamom. Plenty of citrus zing complemented by the gingery spiciness of coriander.
Mediterranean tonic garnished with a lemon slice and a fresh thyme sprig.
Try this as a Red Snapper cocktail, the gin version of a Bloody Mary.
