The taste of the pickleback shot


23 Reviews

The shot’s taste is clearly influenced by the whiskey used. This taste is influenced by very tart, sour-salty flavours of the cucumber water. Although the mixture seems very unusual at first glance, the flavours harmonise surprisingly well with each other and create a varied flavour profile that is so unusual that you absolutely have to try it!
