There is nothing better than the smell of opening a bag of peppercorns and this gin does that for us.
Audemus Spirits founder and distiller Miko Abouaf, a fellow Australian, set up shop in Cognac, France, after several years working as a Cognac distiller. The pink peppercorns in his Pink Pepper Gin pack a punch and are balanced with other tasty botanicals like honey, vanilla and cardamom.
It makes for a good mix of sweet and spicy notes all in the one hit. Even if you don’t love pepper, this gin is brilliant.
Pair with: Fever Tree Aromatic tonic (pink label), and, of course, a sprinkle of pink peppercorns (though you do spend the evening politely spitting them out, or delicately chewing them).
