Nelson’s Gin is setting itself apart as one of the first creators of a timur pepper-infused gin. Timur is a Nepalese pepper, which boasts the spiciness of a Sichuan peppercorn and a surprising zestiness thanks to hints of grapefruit. According to Bar Magazine, "The timur pepper is emerging as a popular cocktail ingredient in leading bars across the globe." Notably, this ingredient—which is often used in the making of curries and seasonings—is often referred to as a "false pepper," as it is actually a berry with a distinct flavor that is said to be like a cross between a citrus fruit and a peppercorn.
The Timur Gin features the pepper oil alongside other botanicals to create a unique aroma, flavor experience and sensation that Nelson's Gin describes as "a tingly feeling in the mouth."
