Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin
Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin is a highly aromatic, rich and spicy gin with great power and intensity. It uses spices like Tasmanian pepperberry leaf, cinnamon, West African spice grains of paradise and Indonesian cubeb to up the ante. Plus there some fresh ginger to the botanical basket to help lift the spice. The Spiced Negroni Gin has been awarded Master status at the Global Gin Masters two years in a row (2017 and 2018).
L'Amuse Gouda is made in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Beemster Polder in Northern Holland by CONO Cheesemakers, a cooperative set up by farmers from several neighbouring villages in 1901.
The cheeses are made using pasteurised milk from Holstein-Fresian cows. The curds are pressed in moulds for 24 hours then brined for 36 hours before being dried and transferred to the cellars of L’Amuse near Amsterdam for affinage by Betty Koster and team.
The cheeses mature for around 2 years before being released and sold. Betty matures these goudas at higher temperatures and humidity levels than normal, which allows the crystals to form while preserving the moist, buttery paste.
The resulting flavour is deep, sweet, tangy and rich, with toasted notes of caramel, cocoa, coffee and spice.
