Umami, what is that? Well alongside the classic sweet, sour, salty and bitter you have Umami. We all know what the others taste like but what about umami? Well the best way we can describe it is savoury. Foods like cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes and now gin (is gin a food) contain it!
The team at That Boutique-y Gin Company have gone and bottled the flavours. Alongside the classic botanicals such as juniper, citrus and coriander that have included tomato, Tasmanian pepperberry and salty umami rich soy sauce. Could this be the perfect accompaniment to the Saturday night Chinese takeaway.
