Audemus Spirits Pink Pepper Gin is low pressure distilled using a rotavap with nine botanicals including: juniper, pink peppercorns, cardamom, honey, vanilla and tonka.

(sample batch N0.2 “pepper flip”, one of 500 bottles) Crystal clear.
It is indeed peppery - pink pepper corns - with pine and eucalyptus juniper, cardamom, floral rose petal and cinnamon flavoured Dentine chewing gum.
Slight honey sweetness (it’s made with a honey distillate and left fat tear legs on the glass), eucalyptus, pine, cardamom and more cinnamon Dentine with strong peppery spice.
That Dentine-like flavour continues in the long finish with floral rose notes and cleansing peppery spice. Due to its underlying sweetness, I’d describe this intensely flavoured gin as being reminiscent of a spicy old tom gin in style.
