Our Gin is made in The Lion City Singapore by our head distiller Tim Whitefield and his team located near Singapore’s famous zoo.

The label shape on the front of the bottle symbolizes the iconic Tanglin Gate located at Singapore’s Botanic Garden. Tanglin is a leafy residential district made up of embassies, grand houses and luxury hotels. The Botanic Gardens’ paved trails are popular with families, and its outdoor Symphony Stage attracts picnicking concert-goers. Chic cocktail bars and trendy restaurants occupy the former British army barracks on Dempsey Hill, while hip art galleries and upscale shops line the northern end of Tanglin, where spices were orginally grown in Singapore.
The tiger-infested land was cultivated to grow sireh, pepper, nutmeg and Ginger.
