Description

The end result of all the above is Achroous Gin – a complex, modern take on the classic London dry spirit. Here’s a few pointers on what’s going on in the glass.

First and foremost, there’s a big whack of juniper. From there, a woody, musty quality comes from the root botanicals, a gentle sweetness from the fennel seed, and a fragrant, earthy citrus from the peppercorns. The finish is lip-smacking, resinous bitterness, laced with warm, delicate notes of spice and sweet anis.

In terms of a g&t – grab a rocks or a highball glass, fill it with big cubes of good quality ice, pour in 35ml of Achroous and top up with a dry, light tonic, like Fever Tree Refreshingly Light. If you want garnish, use citrus – lemon or pink grapefruit work well.

The gin has big, wafting nose, especially once you’ve added tonic. The Sichuan peppercorns bring a huge, floral spice, while the fennel adds a grassy, herbaceous hint of anis.
