Originating from high up in the Nepalese mountains, the potent ingredient is part of the Szechuan Pepper Family. The spice offers a citric aroma not too dissimilar to grapefruit. However, its taste still leaves the warm feeling you might normally expect from peppercorns.
The largest, and most trusted food and drink awards in the world.
Its panel consists of over 500 experts – chefs, buyers, food writers, and retailers.
Ranging from 1 to 3-star accolades, receiving Great Taste stars is regarded
as a highly-respected seal of approval.
And our Timur Gin has been awarded the highest of them all!
“Remarkable nose of grapefruit and pink peppercorns. We tasted the gin before registering it included Timur Pepper, but it makes sense of the powerful aromatics. There’s also juniper dryness and of course, the grapefruit notes underpin everything. Tonic loosens it up and makes it even more quaffable. Amazing.”
“Bright and clear with pronounced juniper notes supported with woody spice and citrus. A slightly creamy mouthfeel with well-balanced spices and herbaceous mid-tones. Sweet spices and citrus find their way through in the finish creating a diverse and interesting character. We felt that everything was well married together.”
“Inviting citrus and cardamom aroma. A lovely and smooth gin – quite a bit of heat, but a good level of citrus, aromatic cardamom and a hint of sweetness to create balance. A well-constructed gin with a good mix of botanicals.”
“A beautiful golden colour, and rich aroma of caramel, spice and vanilla. Initially quite sweet, with plenty of the sugary caramel character, there’s plenty of spice for balance and then the cacao creeps in and creates an almost creamy, chocolatey mouthfeel. A really interesting rum, with clever use of the ingredients.”
“Gentle, seductive, toffee and marmalade alluring aroma. Tastes pure and authentic with lots of interesting notes, though not obviously sherry cask.
A good sipping rum. Elegant and welcoming.”
