Interesting, a little bit different and unashamedly Asian, these are some of the botanicals you might detect when you indulge in a Peddlars gin. 

Sichuan peppers

Sourced from Qingxi, Sichuan Pepper is a fragrant and prized pepper once gifted to Chinese emperors for medicinal and culinary uses. Famous for their numbing heat in Sichuan cuisine, they heat and spice to Peddlers gins.

Buddha's Hand

A symbol of longevity and fortune, Buddha’s Hand has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine. Hailing from Yunnan, this unusual fruit has a flavour similar to lemon zest but with a more floral twist, offering a unique flavour profile to gin.


For thousands of years Lotus has played an important part in China’s culinary history. In Buddhist tradition, it’s a strong symbol of purity. Sourced from Gansu in Northern China, Lotus adds a light floral nose and lingering finish to Peddlers gins.


Grown on the Northern Hungarian Highlands, Juniper Berries are macerated in warm spirit for 12 hours, allowing the skins to burst and release the essences that bring out the distinctive juniper flavour at the heart of all premium gins.


Peddlers sources organic licorice from farms in China’s southern Guangdong province, near the banks of the Han River. Licorice adds a bittersweet note that amplifies the flavours of other botanicals.


Grown in the tropical climates of Yunnan, East Asian Mint is known for its aromatic and calming properties. It softens the taste profile of Peddlers gins, particularly complementing Buddha’s Hand, Sichuan Pepper and Cassia.


A cherished food from China’s Northwest region, almonds are sourced from Tianshan, meaning ‘Heavenly Mountains’, near the border of Kyrgyzstan. The relative scarcity of water in the region makes the almonds sweeter than other varieties, adding flavour depth to the Peddlers recipes.


Cardamom pods are sourced from the tropical climates of Java, Indonesia. With a resinous and slightly cooling flavour, Cardamom Pods adds a distinctive sweet spice to the mix.


Sourced from the seasonal climates of North Eastern China, Angelica is a binding and balancing ingredient.  t also offers its own dry notes rounding off gin with a smooth, dry finish.


Found in the arid, mountainous areas of Northern India, Coriander Seeds bring a soft spiciness and hints of fresh ginger and citrus to gin.


Cassia Bark hails from China’s Southwestern province, Yunnan, near the Tibetan border. A close relative of cinnamon, Cassia brings warmth with a hint of sweet spice to Peddlers gins.
