A Western version of Chinese Suan Mei Tang.
Peddlers is an explorer, creator and harbinger of new ideas. Born from the hasty Shanghai underground scene of creation and trade, art and music on one side, and ancient Chinese knowledge of medicinal and beneficial fauna on the other, Peddlers gives an expression that cannot be matched. This Gin captures the true essence of the Far East, the Western tastes it was born out of, and the flavors that will satisfy even the most demanding drinker. If it seems that Peddlers Gin is a product of a longstanding tradition, it’s because it took a whole team of creators five years of experimenting and mixing to come up with the perfect recipe for this award-winning, world-renowned Gin. Heck, even their original bottle took 3 years to design!
Peddlers Salted Plum Gin is a Chinese take on a traditional sloe Gin, with the main ingredients being - you guessed it - plum instead of a sloe berry. Peddlers took their Shanghai Gin, an adventurous combination of 11 organic botanicals, some of them traditional, some inherently Chinese, such as Budha’s hand, Chinese cassia and Sichuan pepper, and decided to take it one step further. They infuse this award-winning Gin with the traditional ingredients of Suan Mei Tang: salted plum, mulberry, orange peel, and osmanthus. The liquid is then aged in ex-Oloroso Sherry barrels for a month to give it that dry finish. This bold version of a Sloe Gin is bottled at ABV of 25% and has kept the liqueurish essence of the original while giving it a fresh, worthwhile expression.
