Description

Gin Occulte is a quite special Gin. It is an exclusive distillation for the bar „Le Valmont Club & Lounge“ in Prague. The bar belongs to the most exclusive locations in the city and is known for its spectacular Belle Époque interieur and classy cocktail creations. Gin Occulte stands in line with this image. It is distilled with grapefruit, pink pepper and vanilla. The distiller describes Gin Occulte as a culinaric journey to the bordellos of 19th century Paris. Gin Occulte mixes well with a classic, bitter Tonic Water. We recommend to decorate the drink with pink peppercorns. Simply crumble them over the glass, they will give your Gin & Tonic the finishing touch.

 

Pink Pepper, a botanical of Occulte Gin:

A pink peppercorn (French: baie rose, "pink berry") is a dried berry of the shrub Schinus molle, commonly known as the Peruvian peppertree. The popularity of pink pepper derives itself from the increasing utilization of it as a culinary spice in recent years. It is flavoursome, mildly sweet, and its fragrance reminds a bit of roses. Pink pepper does not burn on the tongue like black pepper does. Crush a pink peppercorn between your teeth and you will see how your tongue will not catch fire like it would with a whole black pepper one. Pink pepper is actually not real pepper, but as it looks as such, the berry got its misleading name. The fine taste of the berries adds a welcome piquancy to various dishes and yes, as well drinks! Nevertheless, in 1982 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the import of Brazilian peppercorns from France into the United States, asserting that people who eat the berries risk an array of acute symptoms, such as swollen eyelids and indigestion, similar to poison ivy. In response, the Government of France maintained that the berries are safe to eat if grown in prescribed conditions. The United States later lifted the ban, presently pink peppercorns are legal in the USA. You see, the pink peppercorn has quite an interesting story to tell. With its surrounding mystery it is the perfect botanical for a mysterious Gin like Occulte.
