We’ve worked closely with Romy to craft a gin that portrays the unique flavours of India. Specially selected herbs and spices, commonly found in Indian cooking are distilled at the 6 O’clock Gin distillery before being infused with the juice of the native Indian mango. The result is a deliciously moreish artisan gin, portraying the unique flavours of India and striking the perfect balance between rich fruity sweetness and spice.
The natural sugars of the mango add a honey-like sweetness to the gin, perfectly accompanying the restrained spice from the ginger, cardamom and cumin. Citrus from the juniper, lime & lemon peel play a crucial role in keeping the palate refreshed, whilst the coriander gives the gin a pleasing savoury finish. It makes for a perfect G&T on a hot summer’s day.
