Right Gin

Drink Hacker Review:
The flavor choices here are largely traditional — juniper, coriander, cardamom, and a variety of citrus botanicals (including lemon as well as bitter orange, bergamot, and lime) — but the real surprise in Right Gin is the addition of black pepper — yes, black pepper like the stuff on your dining table.
First sip offers up-front citrus, and orange peel is strong on the nose, too. Juniper is moderate but fades away quickly. And then that pepper kicks in. It’s extremely strange, and so unexpected it’s difficult to place properly when you taste it in a gin. I’m glad Right told me they use pepper in the blend or I would have had a tough time placing it. But once you realize that’s what you’re tasting, you can almost taste nothing else in it, at least after the initial citrus punch fades away.

  1. Love this gin, pepper all over the place, great up neat with some great vermouth, maybe a blue cheese olive as well!
