This first batch is the result of a unique challenge put forth by our founders, to create a gin which combines the refreshing brightness of Mediterranean citrus with the complexity and sharpness of select peppercorn varieties from around the world. Several years of research were necessary to attain a harmonious balance for this assemblage, explaining its rarity in the gin universe.
This spirit, distilled in a 19th century copper alembic, is produced in extremely limited quantities. The botanicals and peppercorns that we rigorously select are sourced from small producers with traditional harvesting methods.
The first expedition begins with prominent top notes of juniper and pink pepper that help to anchor the complex olfactory signature of this gin.
On the palate, the body is fresh and slightly sweet, with pronounced touches of mandarin from the shores of the Mediterranean. The voyage is rounded out by a warm and enduring spicy base punctuated by Sichuan pepper and cardamom.
