From French spirit specialists Audemus comes a very intriguing expression – Umami Oak Finished Gin. This spirit has been made using a Sicilian caper distillate as well as an infusion of Parmigiano-Reggiano Italian parmesan cheese, along with juniper and two more botanicals. Following that, it's rested in an ex-Cognac cask for several months before bottling. Intriguingly savoury, as you would expect from the name, which refers to our fifth "basic taste".
Tasting note: Definitely savoury, but not in-your-face salty. A whisper of citrus sweetness brings some balance, along with hints of vanilla and the classic juniper bite.
