This is Peddlers' version of of a sloe gin, inspired by traditional Peking Flavours. By taking their award-winning Shanghai Gin and infusing it with salted plums, mulberry, orange peel and osmanthus. This is all then aged in Oloroso sherry barrels for a lovely dry finish.
This is an unbelievable aromatic gin, with layers of floral notes, stone fruit sweetness, and a long dry finish. Everything about this gin feels premium, from the stunning bottle to the full bodied and masterfully balanced purple liquid inside.
On the nose, aromatics of osmanthus and dates are overlaid with floral notes from Sichuan pepper.
On the palate you'll find sweetness of stone fruit, balanced with salty and slightly sour notes of salted plums. Earthy tones are brought from hawthorne, angelica, and juniper - giving a rich bodied mouthfeel which rounds into smoked cherry and oak.
The finish is long and complex, with a dryness from the sherry casks, balanced with more sweetness from stone fruit, and vanilla notes.
Salted plum goodness!
Splendid gin. We experimented with it in (too!) many cocktails and in the end enjoyed it mostly neat over ice or with east imperial soda water. My husband loved it with lemonade. It's a very complex and delicious flavour, and perfect for freinds who are silly enough not to like normal gins!! Very yummy, thank you.
Really enjoyed this one
I was very surprised at how true to the description it actually tasted. I liked the bottle style. My friend read the label and remarked it's from China. I actually didn't realise this and was very surprised because I have never thought of the Chinese making Gin. But they have done very well. I would definitely purchase again
Superb new flavor
Pleasantly surprised by this gin. A welcome edition to the shelf.
Fast delivery and delicious gin! Thank you
