Details

"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 it’s enjoyed. When you first try a sip of Pink Pepper Gin, it’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 – thus it’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.  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’s a true labour of love, resulting in a smooth and elegant gin.


 

The Audemus Distillery is a little atypical for the Cognac region, where we usually encounter giant copper beasts which can churn out hundreds of litres of their spirit a day. In fact, there are only a handful of distilleries around the globe that create the way we do. We operate a vacuum distillery out of the distiller’s (Miko’s) living room in the centre of Cognac. The principle behind this method of distillation is simple and now well documented. By lowering the pressure inside the still, we lower the temperature at which the alcohol will boil – meaning we avoid cooking the botanicals we distill; ensuring the freshness of flavour is maintained. Distilling is always distilling – evaporating and condensing; nothing more – however, it is a process that is infinitely complex in its simplicity and allows for a myriad of detail."
